Leave Rover Home (Please)

Spring is an important time for Nature; a time of birth and renewal. We too, want to share in this rebirth and seek the healing that Nature can bring, with people going out in droves to explore state parks and private land trusts. Unfortunately many are bringing their dogs, and unleashing them. During Fairfield Earthday’s Webinar on the Legislative Session Lori Brown of Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) asked for people to leave their dogs at home in order to protect nesting birds and other species.

Create Your Own Earth Day 2020 Garden

Got even a square foot of outdoor space? Celebrate the 50th Earth Day by getting outdoors and planting a pollinator-friendly garden! Pollinators (insects, birds or other animals that move pollen from one plant to another) are responsible for up to 30% of our food supply. Our native pollinator populations are threatened due to pesticide use, habitat loss due to urbanization and suburbanization (lawns are not habitat for pollinators), and climate change. It’s fun and easy for kids to help plant and maintain your garden!

Go on Safari!

You don’t have to come to Aspetuck Land Trust’s preserves for a nature adventure… look to your own yard! Hunt for invasive plants, celebrate native pollinators, and be on the lookout for any exciting critter hiding under rocks and logs in your own yard!
