TLGV Ranger Marcy’s July Acorn Adventures – Explore with us 3 times this month in Lebanon, Holland, & Killingly!

July is here! Summer vacations are a great time to explore your 35 town National Heritage Corridor. Ranger Marcy’s Acorn Adventures head to 3 of our towns this month alone.

Join us at all 3 adventure places, with very different topics!

  1. Saturday, July 9, 2016 from 1-2:30 pm at Lebanon Historical Society Museum, 856 Trumbull Highway (Route 87), Lebanon, CT. Celebrate Independence!

We’ll Celebrate Independence in George Washington’s footsteps with a little parade, our mini-flags, and telling what we know & like about the 4th of July. Then we’ll head inside the museum for a FREE visit. The children’s room is filled with stuff to help kids learn! Historic outfits, a tent to pitch, a toy musket to shoot and more.

  1. Thursday, July 14, 2016 from 11 am – 12 noon at Quinebaug Woods, Dug Hill Road, Holland, MA. Hiking, Maps & Safety on the Trails!

Ms. Jessi, director of the Holland Public Library has invited us back for another Acorn Adventure! In April we enjoyed a salamander search (found 16) as Ms. Jessi read a book about salamanders to us at Lake Siog Pass Trail. In July we’ll learn about reading trail maps & markers, and hiking safety, too at the Quinebaug Woods Trail.

  1. Monday, July 18, 2016 from 10 – 11:30 am at the Killingly River Trail, Junctions of Routes 6 & 12, Killingly, CT. (park behind water treatment center.) Book Trail & Scavenger Hunt!

Ms. Allison from the Killingly Library has invited us to join her for an Acorn Adventure on the paved trail that runs along the Quinebaug River. We’ll start out reading the book “Treasure Hunt” by the river, then have a treasure hunt of our own finding things along the trail!

Snacks, Acorn stickers & fresh air FUN always included!

Dress for the weather (wear proper shoes & maybe a hat.) Bring your family, friends, & bug spray!

FREE! All ages welcome.

Explore, visit, engage & connect with the things that make our National Heritage Corridor special, like our history, museums, trails, rivers, libraries & librarians!

Strollers are welcome.
Leashed dogs are welcome on the 2 trails, but not for the museum visit of course.
