Moonlit Gathering with CVRLT at Komlo Preserve
January 1 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm
On January 1, 2018, the full moon will rise at 9:25 pm. Join with others on Komlo Preserve, one of the properties belonging to The Candlewood Valley Regional Land Trust, for a short stroll and gathering to view the full moon and bring in the New Year.
Adult and non-alcoholic beverages and snacks will be served. This preserve is an idyllic setting with open meadows, wildlife sanctuary, forested wetlands, a man made pond and it is situated right in the center of town. This donation came from Joseph Komlo as the Open Space for the Dunham Pond Condominiums. The pond, which was made when gravel was mined for the building of Route 37, is home to a wide array of wildlife. Beavers, ducks and geese all rely on this habitat. There is also a sizable heronry right at the edge of the forest. This property is the southern end of the Shortwoods Brook Aquifer. This gift certificate good for four people – a value of $80 donated by The Candlewood Valley Regional Land Trust.
