Greenwich Land Trust to hold Go Wild! Family Field Day Sept. 25

Greenwich Land Trust will hold their 17th annual Go Wild! Family Field Day celebration and fundraiser on Sunday, Sept. 25, from 3-6 p.m. at the Greenwich Polo Field at Conyers Farm. The event includes live music, hands-on activities, treats from local food vendors and its signature hot air balloon rides.

Every year, excitement builds as the colorful hot air balloons inflate and rise over the green expanse of the 40-acre polo field. Friends and families reunite and wander among the many activities. These include the bungee trampoline, petting zoo and pony rides, arts and crafts, giant harvest maze, rock climbing wall and more – all set to live, foot-tapping bluegrass music.

“Go Wild is one of the last outdoor fun-fests where you can spend the afternoon enjoying what makes Greenwich so special. We love that all ages attend, kids run around and play and hopefully take a balloon ride,” says Go Wild! Co-chair Alexa Maddock.

Drive along most roads in town and you have likely passed meadows, wetlands or woods that are protected by Greenwich Land Trust. “We are excited to support Greenwich Land Trust to ensure our community stays a little wilder,” says co-chair Lizzie Lindstrom.

All-inclusive tickets can be purchased at www.gltrust.org or by calling 203-629-2151. Advance tickets are $60 for adults, $30 for children and are free for children 3 and under. Tickets include all rides, food and drink. Go Wild! is generously supported by corporate sponsors, Douglas Elliman Real Estate and Serendipity.

Funds support Greenwich Land Trust’s work to preserve open space and the nature of our community for this and future generations. The Land Trust is a nationally-accredited land preservation nonprofit founded 40 years ago. Today it protects over 774 acres of permanently preserved land and works to create a community of natural beauty and environmental health. Learn more at www.gltrust.org.
