Here is the information on the two hikes Woodbury will be hosting.

Hike #1
Woodbury Parks & Rec, Conservation Commission and Flanders Nature Center and Land Trust
Orenaug Park
Saturday, June 1 (Rain Date: June 2nd)
10:00am - 12:00pm
 
We will cover several trails, and viewpoints. Our first stop will be the Fire Tower. Hikers are free to climb it if they wish. The trail from the start to the Tower is a moderate hike of 1 mile. From there we will hike to Bethel Rock, a site of historic and religious significance, before returning to the Senior Center. At the Tower, hikers will have the option to return to the parking lot or continue on the more challenging hike to Bethel Rock. The trail from the Tower to Bethel Rock is rugged in places, and hilly, so please bring proper hiking boots, hiking poles if needed, water and bug spray. The entire walk is 4 miles, but hikers can break off at any time. Hike leaders - Mike Carlo (Flanders Land Trust) and Dave Taylor (Woodbury Conservation).

Hike #2
Pomperaug River Watershed (PRWC)
Three Rivers Park River Trail
Saturday, June 1 (Rain Date, June 2nd)
2:30pm - 4:00pm
 
A guided walk along the river at Three Rivers Park. Mr. Bjerklie has a Ph.D. degree in Earth Sciences and MS degrees in both Civil Engineering and Hydrology. He recently retired from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Water Resources Division in East Hartford, CT having served there for 18 years as a Hydrologist. Mr. Bjerklie is the author of numerous water resource related publications including his extensive research within the Pomperaug River Basin. As he walk and talks, Dave will share a review of erosion processes, river morphology (sounds cool, right?), and ground-water and surface-water processes in the watershed. You're sure to learn something new as you enjoy all the river trail has to offer including fish jumping, birds singing, and your fellow trails day enthusiasts. Please dress for outside, wear sturdy shoes, bring water, and be prepared for nuisance bugs.
