Saturday, August 6, 2022, 7-8 pm. Bats at Lyon Preserve- Pomfret
Bats do great work in nature, and twilight is a perfect time to see them flying and catching mosquitoes.

Saturday, October 1, 2022, 10-11:30 am. Leaves & Mushrooms at Rapoport Preserve-Woodstock.
Celebrate fall and see how many leaves and mushrooms can be identified along Taylor Brook.
