Members, Friends and Neighbors,
Naromi's Upland Pastures Preserve is a favorite place to take in the splendor and beauty of nature at sunset. It is also habitat for bobolink and other field nesting species of birds, butterflies and hay for our local tenant farmer.  And, because of Naromi, it will remain that way forever.

We invite you to join us for our 50th Anniversary Gala on July 28th being held in this wonderful spot.  You will be front and center when it is at its most beautiful!  We hope you can join us and tickets are on sale now on our website at  

It was fun to visit Upland Pastures with a reporter recently and have the opportunity to talk about Naromi.  Read it here.

All the Best,

Amanda Branson,  Executive Director
Naromi 50th Anniversary Gala

Naromi's Annual Meeting, Friday, July 13th
Photo by Carol Kaliff
On Friday, July 13 at 6:30 PM, Naromi Land Trust will hold its Annual Meeting at the Lake Mauweehoo Clubhouse. Bring the family, enjoy refreshments with ice cream for purchase from Jason the Ice Cream Man and hear from our keynote speaker, Debbie Corcione, founder and Director of the Wildlife-Line, Inc., a wildlife rehabilitator located in Sherman. The Annual Meeting is free and open to the public.
Debbie Corcione started the Wildlife-Line in 2008 but has been a rehabilitator over 25 years. The mission of Wildlife-Line is to rescue and rehabilitate orphaned or injured wildlife and return them to their natural habitat. While many of the animals have obvious signs of injury or neglect, there are many animals who appear to be abandoned but are not. There are many guidelines for how to assess if an animal requires rescue and she will share some of that information in her presentation. Debbie believes that every animal should have a chance to live out its natural life and she hopes to share her experience and expertise with the community. Come and learn more about the amazing resource we have right here in Sherman.
The evening will include a short business meeting.
The Clubhouse at Lake Mauweehoo is the intersection of Route 37 South and Leach Hollow Road. Contact Naromi's office at 860-354-0260 or for more information.
Butterfly Walk Upland Pastures- Saturday, July 14th
Summer is a glorious time in our local fields to view and enjoy our local butterfly population.

Join Naromi and Friends of the Great Swamp on Saturday, July 14th at 11:00 am, as we walk the Upland Pastures Preserve to identify and learn more about our local butterflies.  

Leaders Laurie Wallace and Dennis Larkin will be your guides for the afternoon and, based on the timing, we hope to view Swallowtails, both Tiger and Black as well as Painted Lady and Red Admiral, and maybe some Monarchs.

Please wear long sleeves and pants, a hat and bring binoculars, water and tick repellent RSVP is required.  Please contact Naromi's office at 860-354-0260 or click HERE to send an email.

Naromi's Upland Pastures Preserve is located on the north side of Route 37 East, Sherman CT, opposite White Silo Farm (that address is 32 Route 37 East, Sherman CT).  Turn in the dirt road with several mailboxes; go about 100 yards, and park along the road.  The group will gather there to walk into the field.
Jack Thomson Completes Eagle Scout Project at Irene's Woods
Naromi is excited to announce that Sherman resident, Jack Thomson, completed his Eagle Scout project on our Irene's Wood trail last month.  Jack identified that the steps on the Irene's Woods trail were washed out making traversing the hills on either side of the small brook difficult.

With support from the Sherman Boy Scout organization, family and friends, Jack planned, coordinated and executed this project with a tremendous outcome (right).

Naromi is grateful that Jack selected our trails for his project and we hope that when you travel Irene's Woods next, you will remember Jack's hard work!
