Hike to Trout Pond

Saturday, November 5, 2016

In 1990, UVLT acquired Trout Pond. Three years later, we conveyed it to the Town of Lyme with a conservation easement. Come walk with us along the trails to the undeveloped shoreline of the pristine Trout Pond. The views of Smarts alone are worth the effort! If time allows, we’ll spend some time exploring the forest off trail as well. Co sponsored by the Lyme Conservation Commission. For details email contactus(at)uvlt.org.

Volunteer “Land Stewards” help UVLT meet an important obligation. UVLT is required to make periodic visits to conservation lands to collect observations the condition and current uses of the land. Land Stewards work with UVLT Stewardship staff to provide crucial assistance with field work—from meeting landowners of permanently conserved land, to hiking off-trail with map and compass or GPS to find property boundaries, to recording any man-made or natural changes in land use. These annual monitoring visits are an essential part of the stewardship record for each easement, and they are a great opportunity to see lands and parts of towns that you may not typically visit! The  training workshop will include an indoor session with general easement information, instruction on using a map and compass, GPS, and understanding how to read the landscape. During the second half of the workshop we will venture outside for hands-on field practice.
