The creation of and care for many of the walking trails on Fishers Island began as an individual volunteer effort spearheaded by seasonal resident Matty Matthiessen starting in the 1960s. What began as a labor of love and appreciation from a handful of dedicated supporters expanded into an annual tradition shared by many.
The Museum’s 2020 Annual Exhibition will take an in-depth look at Ft. H.G. Wright’s emplacements and armament. Please contact the Museum if you have pix that you are willing to share.
If you couldn’t make the workshop in August but want to contribute to the iNaturalist Biodiversity project on Fishers, I encourage you to download the iNaturalist app and find out more about the Fishers Island Biodiversity Project.
