Celebrate summer with Greenwich Point tree walk

Many residents treasure Greenwich Point with its beach, waterfront views and paths for walking, running, biking and skating, but perhaps taken for granted are its varied trees.

If you’d like to know more about these trees, come celebrate the Summer Solstice, Friday, June 21, which is the longest day of the year, with the Greenwich Tree Conservancy at Greenwich Point.

Join the conservancy for a bring-your-own picnic beginning at 6 p.m. at the Cow Barn picnic area. In the event of a storm, people should meet at the Innis Arden Cottage. The picnic will be followed by a tree walk at 7 p.m. led by Superintendent of Parks and trees, Bruce Spaman and Conservation Director, Denise Savageau.

People participating will be able to learn about the importance of coastal forests as habitat and the challenges of maintaining this habitat relating to invasive species and storm events.

The walk is free but reservations are required at [email protected]
