Take a hike to the Wolf Den with Russ Miller, naturalist and director of Meigs Point Nature Center, and Stephen Gencarella, professor at UMass Amherst and author of three books on New England folklore. Hear legends about Israel Putnam and the wolf and decide if they are accurate, based on historical and scientific evidence. Learn about the animals that make Mashamoquet Brook State Park their home, as well other legendary creatures in Connecticut, including the whapperknocker. This hike is a 4.5 mile loop and entails some steep hills and potential wet trails. Sponsored by TLGV Member Stephen Gencarella and Russ MIller.
