An updated Trail Guide will be published in time for this summer season that provides individual maps and descriptive text for each of 10 Museum Land Trust trails. The Guide was first published in 1995 and republished with revisions in the early 2000s. The acquisition of new Land Trust properties, plus the creation of several new trails led to the publication of this new, third edition.

HLFM board member Terry McNamara, who leads the Museum’s nature walks, and naturalist Maggie Jones, director of the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center in Mystic, CT., were the primary writers for the new Guide. They both did a great job editing the old text and providing new observations on flora and fauna for each of the trails. Beth Jepsen of Insite Design, New London, CT, designed all the maps. You can purchase a copy year-round at the Museum, or at the Craft Fair during the summer.
