Bring a flashlight and join us for an evening stroll on the Garvan Trail at the Surf Club. A bagpiper will lead the way. After the walk, refreshments will be served in the Surf Club building, and members of the Astronomical Society of New Haven will set up telescopes for viewing the moon, planets and stars in the night-time sky.
Guest speaker Eric D. Lehman is the author of eleven books about Connecticut, including the “Insiders’ Guide to Connecticut,” and “Connecticut Vanguards.” His book, “Afoot in Connecticut,” is a love letter to our often overlooked state, an inspirational story that will have you taking to the trails and the greenways, along the beaches and mountaintops, and into a land full of transformation, of beauty, and of strength. In his talk he will discuss how he fell in love with the natural beauty of our state by walking the paths and trails, and share some of his most interesting adventures. He will also discuss ideas about using our small size and trail network to our advantage, and how local groups like the Madison Land Trust can help.
