The Woodbridge Land Trust, in cooperation with the Woodbridge Park Association and the Town of Woodbridge Recreation Department, invites you to join us while we take a relaxing stroll through the 150-acre town property at the former County Club of Woodbridge. A Connecticut Service Forester and a local bird enthusiast will provide insight into the habitat and wildlife during this educational and recreational walk.

Sunday, June 4, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm. The Lodge.
Enjoy a hike through a Woodbridge Land Trust property with deep historical roots described in detail in Ezra Stiles’ book published in 1794. The property named The Lodge was used by the Regicide Judges Goffe and Whalley in 1661 to avoid capture by the British agents loyal to King Charles I. The Lodge, also named Hatchet Harbor, once contained a crude shelter built by Goffe, and his father-in-law, Whalley. One of the largest glacial erratics in CT will be observed on the walk.
