Horse Island

Sunday, October 16, 1:15pm to 3:45pm, Thimble Islands, Connecticut

Individuals and Families with children 12 and above

 

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, sometimes slippery, rocky terrain so appropriate footwear is required.

 

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