Discover the fascinating underwater life of our watershed with the
Farmington River Watershed Association as we explore Walton Pond and Poplar
Swamp Brook at beautiful Winding Trails in Farmington. Spend the morning
pond-side and wading in the brook to observe, identify, and marvel at the
life histories and ecology of insects and other creatures that inhabit still
and flowing waters. Learn how and why we use aquatic insects in our
watershed-wide water quality monitoring.
We will provide nets, buckets and expertise; you need only bring your
curious mind. We meet at Nature’s Porch which is Winding Trails’ beautiful
certified Connecticut grown building. We will go outdoors rain or shine.
Please dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear to wade into
shallow water (water shoes, old sneakers, or waders.) This program is open
to all ages but children must be accompanied by an adult.
Advance registration is required; please register through the Winding Trails website: https://www.windingtrails.org/register/?id=516
