Horse Island Field Trip

Sunday, September 27, 1:45pm to 4:00pm, Thimble Islands, Connecticut

Registration is now closed for this event.  If you have any questions please cotnact


Although access is quite limited, this island is owned by the Peabody Museum, so we can visit it! Horse Island, like the other Thimble Islands, is an unusual ecosystem unto itself. On this short excursion, we'll see an interesting mix of coastal and early successional vegetation, with the feel of coastal Maine. Please be aware that some of the walking will be over uneven, rocky terrain so appropriate footwear is required. Heavy rain cancels.


Instructor: Lauren Brown, co-author with Penelope C. Sharp of The Vegetation of the Thimble Islands


There are only a few spaces available, so please register ASAP.


Fee: $40 members, $45 nonmembers, fee includes ferry ticket
