Join the New Haven Land Trust in collaboration with the New Haven Bird Club for this special shoreline walk. Come down to the Wharf to walk and learn in-depth about the complex ecosystem of Long Wharf Nature Preserve and the research and conservation efforts being done there.

Experts, researchers, and stewards who work in Long Wharf Preserve will be present to tell us about their projects and about why this ecosystem is so valuable.
