Hike & Seek:

January 1 - January 3

January 1st-3rd, 2021

All day


Did you know we have redwood trees at Goodwin? Have you ever seen one of our fire ponds? Now’s your chance to explore Goodwin’s trail system like never before, while uncovering some of our most interesting wild and historic features.


In lieu of Goodwin’s annual First Day Hike, we will be hosting a First Weekend Hike & Seek!


For this Hike & Seek event, you will receive a list of 30 nature-themed objectives to find and take a picture of. You are allowed to work in teams or as an individual—it’s a great weekend adventure for a family! In order to find all 30 objectives, you’ll have to explore multiple trails throughout Goodwin.


At the end of the weekend you can send me your checklist and labeled pictures at meaghan.rondeau@ct.gov.

If you find at least 15 (50%) of the objectives, you will receive a Smokey Bear poster and special bandana. Plus, the team or individual with the most objectives found/pictured will win a special secret prize! Winners will be contacted by Friday the 8th.


For the safety of both yourselves and our native habitats, please stay on the trail, watch out for poison ivy, and do not attempt to handle any wildlife. We also ask that you wear a mask when walking in close proximity to other hikers, and follow all social distancing guidelines.


This is a FREE event but registration is required.
