Happy Trails!

Alert — and environmentally conscious — “06880” reader Gene Borio reports:

Westport should be proud!

Sherwood Island State Park’s participation in CT Trails Day was spectacular this year. Connecticut held the largest number of events of any state — by far —  on National Trails Day this past weekend (a nationwide celebration of trails of all kind).

On Saturday, Sherwood Island held probably the widest variety of “trails” in the country. Participants followed them by air, land and sea. Attendees learned about archaeology, ornithology, zoology, history, aerodynamics–and just plain had a lot of fun in the sun.

Not too many Westporters spend a lot of time at the state park in our back yard.

Even if it does lead the nation in the very important category of trail events.

Friends of Sherwood Island sponsored this weekend's Trails Day.
