This field tour at Avalonia Land Conservancy's Hoffman Preserve will be a great opportunity to identify and discuss climate impacts and adaptation actions, and then see first hand how a local land trust has implemented climate adaptation measures.
It will take place on Saturday, October 16th from 12-2 PM, with a rain date (if it rains heavily or thunderstorms) of Sunday, October 17, at the same time. The field tour will be led by Beth Sullivan and Toby Glaza. Beth is the Town chair for Avalonia Land Conservancy in Stonington, and the lead steward on the Hoffman Preserve project. A life long naturalist and educator, she has been observing habitats and wildlife in Southeastern Connecticut and noting the changes that are occurring with climate change. Toby is the newest addition to the staff of Avalonia Land Conservancy. As Stewardship Coordinator, he assists with the overall stewardship and administration of the Conservancy's preserves and conservation easements throughout New London County.
