Blue Flag Meadow Hike

 10/23/2022 @ 10:00 am

Blue Flag Meadow, named for the native iris that blooms along the pond edges, is a 90-acre mostly wooded parcel that includes a large pond and 12 acres of herbaceous fields. It is managed primarily for wildlife with an eye towards Connecticut’s least common habitats: very young and very old forests. Since 2018 it has been enrolled in a cooperative management program called the Young Forest Initiative, sponsored by the Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Wildlife Management Institute. A 9-acre timber harvest to regenerate young forest and a significant invasive plant control effort have been part of this program. On a 1.2-mile hike around the pond and property we’ll discuss the results of this work to date, as well as the older growth areas and the pond.
