This Weekend In Connecticut!

This weekend it’s all about The Moon, Maple Syrup and Ground hogs!


Enjoy an incredible Winter Moon Walk at The Institute for American Indian Studies in Washington, CT! Friday at 7:00pm

This month's full moon occurs January 28, 2021, but the moon will appear full to the casual stargazer tonight too. January's full moon is known as the Wolf Moon, though it has many other nicknames by different cultures. 

The soft sounds of the nighttime winter woodlands provide a pleasant setting for a walk guided by the light of the first full moon of 2021. Join Educators for a walk along the museum’s trails and a discussion of nighttime phenomena that people in the Eastern Woodlands have been experiencing for thousands of years. It ends at their replicated Algonkian village for some hot chocolate around the camp fire.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Please call (860) 868-0518

Please dress appropriately for the weather, including appropriate footwear, and bring a head lamp or flashlight. Price of Participation: $10 for Adults, $8 for Seniors, $6 for children and $5 for Members.


Maple Tapping Day Saturday 9:30am at the Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust in Woodbury!

It all begins when the temperature rises above freezing during the day and falls below freezing at night. These conditions trigger the sap to begin to flow up the tree. No experience is needed for tapping and all ages and families are welcome to come to help out. Tree tapping day is all outdoors and very weather dependent. All staff, volunteers, and visitors MUST wear a face mask.   NO sharing of equipment.  On Tapping Day, please bring your own drill, drill bits, extra batteries (make sure they are charged!) and a hammer. Please download Flanders Participant & Volunteer Waiver form, sign and bring the day of.
