Woodland Connections for Women

Upcoming Events:

Connect with other women and enjoy the beautiful colors of Fall in New England. 

Please join Woodland Connections for Women on the afternoon of Saturday, October 10th from 3:00-5:00 PM for a women’s Fall foliage walk!  

Join us as we hike, learn more about the autumnal changes to the forest ecosystem, and connect with other women in the area. We will be joined by DCR forester Joelle Vautour and the woman who owns the land we will walk on. In addition, the landowner will share her story about stewarding her woods, teaching kids about nature, and permanently protecting the land.  This is a great opportunity to learn more about the ecology of our beautiful New England forests and share your story with other local women who own land. 

Registration is limited, so please register early!
