We had a wonderful time recently planting the first of many "carbon gardens" in lower Fairfield County! This one is in Southfield Park in Stamford. We planted 10 small trees (like Black Willow and Tupelo) and 25 shrubs (like summer sweet and blueberry). These are all native and wetland type plants. We'll continue expanding this project in the Spring! We would love to start doing this in your town too!
Here's another exciting new project starting in Fairfield County that we thought you would like to know about: the Norwalk River Valley Trail. Check out the new website: http://www.nrvt-trail.com/ to learn some ways you can help make this long-envisioned trail become a reality.
The proposed Norwalk River Valley Trail will someday provide a 27-mile route for cyclists, hikers, birders and walkers to use! Upon completion, the trail is expected to stretch from Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk, Connecticut, north through Wilton, Redding and Ridgefield to Danbury and the Charles Ives trail.
Five towns. One vision.
A transition to a post-carbon world is coming; the question becomes how that transition will happen. This multi-purpose trail will connect to several train stations, plus schools, office buildings and other trails — offering a clean, green, car-free transportation route. So, the "NRVT" will help that big transition come to fruition, while providing family fun, outdoor adventures and views of woodlands and wetlands.
Spring hikes on or near the projected route and other events to be announced soon!
