Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust naturalist Sarah Gladu will lead a hike on the Hilton O’Connor Trail in Bremen from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 10.
Participants will learn some of the surprising things that take place under a protective layer of snow, pick up tips on identifying plants in winter, and search for snow buntings and other winter migratory birds.
The Hilton O’Connor Trail winds through the 47-acre Bremen Town Forest, which in addition to mature hardwood forest includes a lovely salt marsh and a wildflower meadow. The trail is dedicated in memory of Diane Hilton O’Connor, who was a longtime member of the Bremen Conservation Commission.
This program is free of charge, thanks to member support. Registration is required at coastalrivers.org/events.
