RRCT Outdoors: Many Tuesdays at 5:30 pm.
Scroll far below for program description. Always bring water. Always expect ticks. Always expect magical experiences. Always respect abutters. Always invite interested parties.
- Tuesday, April 28th, 5:30 p.m: We’ll visit RRCT’s Old Harris Road Preserve in Pownal with fishing poles (and fishing licenses if you are age 16 or older) to document brook trout habitat. Park on the shoulders of Elmwood Road — across the street from Pownal Elementary School and abutting the Cemetery.
RRCT Outdoors: Program Description
RRCT Outdoors is our initiative to engage adults and able youth in RRCT’s mission, especially our Stewardship, Acquisition, and Partnership initiatives. RRCT Outdoors trips are open to the public. The target audience is neighbors of our properties, RRCT Board and Committee members, people interested in joining RRCT’s Board or committees, and RRCT partners (municipalities, NGOs, landowners, more.) The staffed trips (typically Stewardship Director Irene Syphers Flynn and/or Executive Director Alan Stearns, sometimes volunteer-led) include trips to properties where we are drafting new management plans, properties with complex management needs to scope, properties we are considering conserving/acquiring, or properties with established or evolving partnerships. Seldom are the trips simply hikes, but rather they might feel like committee meetings in the field, or orientation sessions in the field for RRCT members who want to dig deep into our work. As staff we have to get out in the field to plan and noodle anyway. We invite you to join us.
