Sunday, September 23, 10:30pm to 1:00pm, Thimble Islands, Connecticut

Individuals and Families with children 12 and above

 

Although access is quite limited, this island is owned by the Yale 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, very rocky terrain so appropriate footwear is required.

 

Instructors: Jim Sirch, Education Coordinator; Rich Boardman, Operations Manager; and Holly Hopkins, Naturalist; Yale Peabody Museum.

 

Fee: $40 members, $50 nonmembers, fee includes ferry ticket
