Trees, Birds, Butterflies and More! (with Greenwich Tree Conservancy)

October 14, 2023 - Greenwich, CT, CT


Join us in partnership with the Greenwich Tree Conservancy for a special outdoor tour of the Greenwich Audubon trails!

The mature trees of Greenwich enable us to live alongside a breathtaking variety of bird life. Trees offer birds of all sizes a place to rest, sheltered spots to raise their young, sources of food, and places to look out on their world. Join Ryan MacLean and Lisa Beebe for a walk to learn about the beautiful trees at Audubon Greenwich and the birds that live amongst them. Binoculars will be available for anyone who needs a pair.

About the Greenwich Tree Conservancy:

Established in 2007, the Greenwich Tree Conservancy is a non-profit organization that preserves and enhances the tree and forest resources of Greenwich to benefit the community, its health and its quality of life. The Greenwich Tree Conservancy works in partnership with the Town of Greenwich to responsibly plant, preserve, and protect trees along town roadways, in town parks and on school grounds, with the goal of planting 500 trees a year. In 2016, GTC began labeling trees in parks throughout town establishing the internationally accredited Greenwich Town Arboretum and has over 1000 trees labeled. The GTC assisted the Town of Greenwich to earn the designation of Tree City USA from the Arbor Day Foundation by planting trees on school grounds annually. The GTC continues to advocate for trees at the local and state levels.
