TLGV’s February Calendar!
Full Moon Snowshoe Hike to the Tri-State Marker: 6-8 p.m., Feb. 8, Air Line Trail parking area at 653-659 East Thompson Road, Thompson, CT. Join The Last Green Valley’s Rangers John and Kevin for a full moon snowshoe hike on the Air Line State Trail and to the Tri-State Marker where Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island meet. The full moon will start rising at 4:30 p.m. to illuminate the hike. If there is not enough snow for snowshoes, we’ll hike anyway. The hike is 2 miles round trip with level ground on the Air Line Trail and uphill for about 0.3 miles to the Tri-State Marker. Hikers will meet at the Air Line State Trail parking area at 653-659 East Thompson Road, Thompson, CT. Registration is required and space is limited. Please call 860-774-3300 or email Chief Ranger Bill Reid at Bill@tlgv.org to register.
Historical Happenings – Telling Your Story, Part I: 6 – 8 p.m., Feb. 19, The Last Green Valley office, 203B Main St., Danielson, CT. We all have a story to tell, but as non-profit historical and cultural organizations getting our story in front of new visitors and supporters can be a challenge. But, in 2020 the opportunities to tell your tales are greater than ever before. Join The Last Green Valley’s Assistant Director Francesca Kefalas in part one of a two part series aimed to help historical organizations, and any non-profit looking for some help, spread the work about the wonderful work being done. This session will focus on understanding your audience and how to use that to create more effective press releases, e-newsletters and create a social media presence. Registration is required and a light supper will be offered. Please call 860-774-3300 or email Fran@tlgv.org. In case of snow, the seminar will be rescheduled for Feb. 26. Part II of the session will be held April 15.
Acorn Adventure – Animal Tracks: 10 a.m., Feb. 22, Lead Mine Mountain Trail, parking area, 10 Old Sturbridge Village Road, Sturbridge, MA. Some animals love winter. Snow and the winter landscape can provide the perfect opportunity to follow their movements, even if you never see them. Join The Last Green Valley’s Chief Ranger Bill Reid on a kid-friendly woods walk where we will look for animal tracks and all the other signs critters leave behind (like poop). Kids will learn what to look for and the differences between some of the more common animal tracks we see in The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor. Acorn Adventures are sponsored by Putnam Bank. For more information call 860-774-3300 or email Fran@tlgv.org.
The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor is the last stretch of dark night sky in the coastal sprawl between Boston and Washington, D.C. The Last Green Valley, Inc. works for you in the National Heritage Corridor. Together we can care for it, enjoy it and pass it on!
