Avery Farm Nature Preserve Powerline Walk
September 7, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Saturday September 7, 10am-1pm
Walk with GOSA botanist Whitney Adams along several thousand feet of powerline right of way in Groton Open Space Association’s Avery Farm Nature Preserve and Town of Ledyard open space.
Expect to see diverse habitats with less common species of club mosses, chokeberries, viburnums, several native late season legumes and spectacular thickets of poison sumac.
We will also consider vegetation management strategies that result in diverse high quality right of way habitat.
From Center Groton (intersection of Rt. 117 with Rt.184) travel east 1.1 mile on Rt. 184. Turn left onto Lambtown Rd. and go 0.95 miles until you reach a metal gate across the driveway to the powerline.
Park on the edge of the road.
Please do not take the other Lambtown road located farther north which links Rt. 117 with Colonel Ledyard Hwy. There is no connection to our meeting point from this direction.
