Shetucket River Walking Tour

October 9 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

free

We will be meeting at the parking lot at the east end of the 8th St bridge. The walk is about a mile and a half round trip along the eastern bank of the Shetucket River. It is a rocky and at times wet trail so dress for hiking in the woods. We will be in the woods most of the time as it only opens up at the boat portage around the Greeneville Dam. We will be focusing on the plant and animal life of the region, in the river, on the shore, and in the air above. Please bring your favorite ID books and an adventurous spirit. Recently we have had sightings of Salmon, Bald Eagles, and Great Blue Herons along the Shetucket River. Come on out and enjoy what the great outdoors has to offer!

This tour is lead by Zechariah Stover, Vice Chair of the Greeneville Neighborhood Revitalization Zone Committee, and will start at the river access lot right off the end of the 8th St bridge. This tour is sponsored by the Greeneville Neighborhood Revitalization Zone Committee, Norwich Historical Society, and the Last Green Valley. This event is free to attend, but pre-registration is required. If you are unvaccinated, please wear a mask. Vaccinated individuals do not need to wear a mask.

1.5 Miles, Moderate. No restrooms. Leashed dogs are welcome. No wheelchair access.
