Cost: FREE - but you MUST pre-register! Pre-register by emailing [email protected] Include your approximate weight (including winter clothes), height, and shoe size. We will use this information to get the correct size snowshoes and poles.

Register now for Team New Haven Land Trust in the 10th Annual Rock to Rock Earth Day Bike Ride!

Rock to Rock is New Haven's biggest Earth Day celebration. Here's how it works: You and about a thousand of your neighbors travel from West Rock and East Rock, with celebrations on both sides of the city. Along the way, eat tasty food, hear great music, take on environmental service projects, and explore our city's parks and neighborhoods.

The ride will be taking place on Saturday, April 28. You can donate to up to three local environmental organizations upon registration! Also, register as a volunteer for the Rock to Rock Day of Service to help out at the Land Trust's gardens or nature preserves on Saturday, April 7.
