Dust off your favorite hiking shoes and grab your water bottle. Connecticut Trails Day 2010 is almost here! This year’s celebration will be held Saturday and Sunday, June 5 and 6, as part of National Trails Day. The theme is “Find Your Happy Place,” which shouldn’t be hard to do considering more than 160 Trails Day events are scheduled in 88 towns across Connecticut.
2010 marks the 18th year that the Connecticut Forest & Park Association has served as the American Hiking Society’s state coordinator for Trails Day. Strong participation by organizations like the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC), local and regional land trusts, town agencies, outdoors-oriented businesses, numerous volunteers, and our great sponsors is key to the success of this statewide celebration. We are proud to say that our state has held the highest number of events of any state in the nation every year.
Don’t miss out on this fun-filled weekend, which will provide many opportunities to discover new places and experience the outdoors with family, friends, and neighbors. All CFPA members will receive the booklet of event listings in the mail.
