Hi All,

We hope you can join us! This is the final canoe tour through the Wheeler Marsh before we put the canoes to bed for the winter. It should be an exciting trip; new duck species are arriving daily...and both night-herons are still around. We also have a chance for Nelson's and Saltmarsh Sparrow... It's our latest trip to date, so we're anticipating some surprises...  Don't miss out.  Please call 203-878-7440 x 502 to register soon. See you Sunday.  Frank Gallo

Autumn Owl Prowl
Fri., Nov. 5, 7:15- 9:15 p.m.
When the sun retreats, owls awaken to go in search of prey. Some say that owls are wise, others that they sparked legends of ghosts. Whatever the truth, a night near All Hallows Eve is a fine time to uncover the mysteries of these amazing nocturnal hunters. We’ll learn about a few of the species that co-exist in our area, and then carpool to a local park to try to call one in. It’s a hoot! Fee: $35/person.

A Second Chance Tag Sale
Sat., Nov. 6, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
