No fewer than five events are happening in New Haven... 

Look for our Sandy Point Sunset Walk under 'West Haven'

Another citizen science project that the NH Bioregional Group is involved in, this one a long-term population ecology study of eastern horseshoe crabs. 
Want to learn more  about this remarkable species of Marine Arthropod that is 
twice as old as dinosaurs? Learn more about the history of this area and experience this wonderful spit of land that extends into New Haven Harbor.
You will be surrounded by wildlife and the beauty of this area.

Come on our Sandy Point walk this Sunday!

Three River Hikes Planned

SUNDAY JUNE 7, 10 AM - Edgewood Park to Pond Lily Dam in New   Haven

SATURDAY June 13, 10 AM - Pond Lily Dam to Historic Indian          Trails in Woodbridge


 At 10 am there will be a public hike along the West River starting at the Tide Gates, passing though West River Memorial Park and 100+ year old Olmstead-designed Edgewood Park.  Participants will learn about the recent changes in the river flow, community involvement, and the history of the parks. The two mile walk ends at the Edgewood Park Gazebo near Whalley Ave. and West Rock Ave. about noon. Walkers are invited to carpool back to the starting point. For more information, contact, Stephanie FitzGerald, West River Watershed Coalition, [email protected], 203-500-7777.


On Sunday, June 7, the public hike begins at the Edgewood Park Gazebo (near Whalley Ave. and West Rock Ave.) and explores the West River from the center of Westville Village, through the West Rock Greenspace ending at the Pond Lily Dam (an earthen dam built in the 1700's that will be demolished this summer to lessen flooding in Woodbridge and improve fish passage in the river). An historian and geologist will interpret. This hike has some rough terrain; wear sturdy shoes. Walkers are invited to carpool back to the starting point.  For more information, contact, Kathy Fay, West River Watershed Coalition, [email protected],  203-815-5615.


On Saturday, June 13, the public hike begins at the Whalley Ave./Amity Walgreen's parking lot at Pond Lily Dam.  The walk will follow Fountain St. into Woodbridge, continue along the Naugatuck Trail to the old Derby Trail (used by the Paugasset Native Americans.), continue to Bradley Rd. and explore the area along the West River suitable for a proposed trail between New Haven and Woodbridge.

Ongoing Book Group

"The Earth is Enough"
Fred Cervin

Monday, June 22, 7:30 PM

You are invited to join an ongoing book group that 
will be reading "The Earth is Enough" by Fred Cervin.

This  book brings together the talks that Fred gave from 
2008 - 2013  at FUUS.  

We have had several meetings on the  book, but we hope others 
will be joining us.  It is easy to jump in along the way.

It is a wonderful opportunity to delve into Bioregionalism, what it is 
about, and Fred's in-depth thinking  about how this applies to our lives.
We will have books available for $5.50.
Monday, March 23, 7:30 PM
FUUS, 608 Whitney Ave., New Haven

Hope you will join us.
