Trail report

Hurricane Ivan provided heavy rain and wind on the Saturday when our OLCT fall walk was originally scheduled, but on Sunday, the weather was absolutely beautiful and we had a marvelous walk on the Lay Property.

OLCT board member and forester Evan Griswold led the walk which started with some background information on our area in general and an estimate of the age of this particular forest (60-80 years). We then walked on dry trails in very good conditions, under the foliage where the September sun was seeping through while Evan taught us some about how to read the forest. For example, it is possible to see from an old stump whether the tree was cut down or fell down due to fire.

We saw Cooper's hawk and found a gall - where a tree grows around an insect! And did you know that trees can talk to each other? Join us the next time there is a walk to explore and learn more about the nature right here in Old Lyme.
