Opening of Janice L. Sullivan Conservation Area

September 18 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Location: Coventry

Join the Coventry Land Trust for a guided walk, followed by an open trail day at the Janice L. Sullivan Property to introduce their newest conservation area in Coventry!

Come experience the seasonal changes that September brings. The scenery of the forest with outcrops & wetlands offers the hiker a peaceful backdrop for a weekend excursion! The property is situated within a beautiful 500-acre conservation area where the Coventry Land Trust has developed four trails that are suitable for a wide range of experience levels.

At 10am, members of the Coventry Land Trust will lead a guided walk on the property’s Blue Trail. The first leg of this is a 1/2 mile. This newest trail connects the Bramblebush neighborhood to the trail network of the Beaudoin Preserve. The second leg, for the more adventurous, will take you on a 2 mile out & back walk to the Coventry Greenway. Round trip the hike will be approximately 2.5 miles. The entire hike will take about 1.5 Р2 hours at a moderate pace.

Following the guided walk, all trails will be open until 2pm for self-guided access. There will be a member of the Coventry Land Trust at the trailhead to provide information & direct you to the trails.

Be sure to wear comfortable clothing & good walking/hiking shoes. The Coventry Land Trust will provide bottled water, snacks, and bug spray. In addition the Land Trust will be holding a drawing featuring gift certificates from local businesses.

This event is FREE and suitable for all ages! Leashed dogs welcome.

Rain Date: None. Rain/thunderstorms will cancel this walk. Updates will be shared on the Facebook or Meetup events.
