Eagle Scout candidate Lukas Bushka recently completed his project at our Bull Pond Preserve area. Luke and company built a beautiful kiosk which now houses our trail map for the Bull Pond area and our site map outlining our other properties.
The Bull Pond Preserve is a 71 acre area. The pond is the main feature where fishing and kayaking are popular sports. The area also features a trail system into the 51 acre wooded area. Bridges and boardwalks keep the trail dry and there is an observation deck located on the red trail for better viewing.
We thank Luke for his hard work and appreciate this addition to our largest property.
We missed our 2020 annual meeting last year and delayed the 2021 annual meeting to await a safer time. The meeting was scheduled to be held in September at the Harwinton Public Library but due to continuing COVID concerns, we cannot confidently hold a meeting at this time. We had engaged a most interesting speaker, Andy Dobos. He was to give a presentation on “Tips for Tracking Wildlife and How to Identify Animal Tracks”. We plan to reschedule this meeting when we can safely do so. At this time we are planning to schedule this at our usual annual meeting time in April.
The mission of the Harwinton Land Conservation Trust is to acquire, preserve, and conserve significant open space in Harwinton to benefit the environment and the public.
Harwinton Land Trust is a volunteer run organization managed by a Board of Directors which is elected at our annual membership meeting.
