TLGV’s July Calendar of Events
TLGV Acorn Adventure with Horizon Wings: 10 -11:30 a.m., July 20, 9 Sand Hill Road, Ashford, CT. Tour the Horizon Wings Raptor Rehabilitation facility and meet the raptors.

Join us for this rare opportunity to see the amazing birds of Horizon Wings in their homes. For more information contact Fran Kefalas at 860-774-3300 or email@example.com. Acorn Adventures are Sponsored by Putnam Bank.
TLGV Member Program – The Plight of the Bobolinks: 7-8:30 pm, July 31, 205 Roseland Park Rd. Woodstock, CT. Bobolinks arrive in Connecticut after having migrated 5,000 to 6,000 miles from their wintering grounds in South America, traveling further than almost any other songbird. They arrive in our state at the beginning of May in search of open areas such as meadows, fields, or farmland to breed. Eastern Connecticut’s own Joanne Warren, Master Naturalist from the Goodwin State Forest and Conservation Center, will discuss problems facing the grassland bird species, and ways you can help protect them. Join us for a 1-hour showing of the movie, Plight of the Grassland Birds, followed by a discussion. Refreshments will be served afterwards. RSVP Required: firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-774-3300.
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!
