For a hidden gem, Haskins Preserve is pretty popular.
The 16-acre spot on Green Acre Lane — a quiet street off Compo Road South — is among the Aspetuck Land Trust’s least-known properties.
But it’s clear that some Westporters are in on the secret.
With woods, meadows, 2 ponds, dams, a spectacular assortment of rare trees — and a very intriguing history — it lures those in the know to its tiny parking lot.
That image by Mark Mathias was last week’s Photo Challenge.
Several readers thought it showed Newman-Poses Preserve, Winslow Park, the Lillian Wadsworth Arboretum, Ford Road, Grace Salmon Park or the Westport Community Garden.
While those were good guesses — and a timely reminder of the beauty that surrounds us here every day — the correct answer came from 15 readers.
Congratulations to Mike Ray, Robert Mitchell, Ivy Gosseen, Fred Cantor, Diane Bosch, Kris Nash, Dan Vener, Edward Bonham, Micil Ryan, Andrew Colabella, Jonathan McClure, Werner Liepolt, Laurie Sorensen, Seth Schachter and Michael Calise.
But ssshhhh — don’t tell anyone else about it!
