With bright, sunny skies and only a few clouds, it was perfect weather for Greenwich to ‘Go Wild’ in last Sunday at the annual benefit for the Greenwich Land Trust.

The family-friendly event is an early fall tradition in town as people of all ages gather at Conyers Farm in backcountry Greenwich. And this was a particularly special years as it was Go Wild!’s 15th so the weather was particularly welcome as it made it a perfect day for such attractions as the bungee trampoline, the pony rides, climbing wall and petting zoo. There was also live music and food and, of course, the always popular hot air balloon rides. Weather is always a factor in whether the balloons can lift off so with the sun and blue skies it was smooth flying.

It was all to benefit the Greenwich Land Trust, a non-profit, conservation organization dedicated to preserving land permanently. The GLT already cares for more than 737 acres of undeveloped land in town. More information is available online at Gltrust,org

The event was made possible by the support of sponsors BNY MELLON Wealth Management and Serendipity Magazine and donations by many local merchants. Post photographer John Ferris Robben was on the scene and up above is a slideshow of his images from there.
