Have you ever wondered about the geological forces that shaped Southeastern Connecticut and how it affected the settlement in the area? Join former CT State geologist Ralph Lewis on a hike through the Lyme Land Conservation Trust’s Brockway-Hawthorne Preserve. He will explain how the glaciers and ancient Hadlyme Lake carved out the land.

The hike will be about two hours, moderately paced with generally easy terrain and a few short ups and downs. Sturdy shoes are a must; a walking stick would be helpful as well. Please be safe- wear a mask in the parking lot. Masks can be removed during the walk as long as social distancing is maintained.

Space is limited. Reservations are required. Contact to reserve a spot. Inclement weather will postpone the event.
