Spring walk will be held on March 30

Spring is finally here and what better way to celebrate it than with a walk in the outdoors.

On Sunday, March 30 the Greenwich Tree Conservancy will hold a spring walk at the Babcock Preserve from 2 to 4 p.m. As one last sign of how bad this winter has been, the original date of March 23 for the walk had to be postponed due to the frozen ground. But the conservancy members are confident that by March 30 all will be well.

All ages are welcome to join the walk and witness a Greenwich rite of spring as participants visit vernal pools in the Babcock Preserve and learn about the wildlife that depend on this unique woodland habitat. According to the conservancy, they are called vernal pools because they are often at their maximum depth in the spring.

The walk and observation will be led by the town’s Conservation Director Denise Savageau and professional wetland scientist Michael Aurelia.

Group size is limited so reservations are required by emailing [email protected] There is no charge for the walk.

Participants are warned that there will be moderate walking over uneven terrain so proper footwear is needed. Walkers will meet at the North Street entrance for the Babcock Preserve.
