Co-hosted by the Woodcock Nature Center and the Wilton Land Conservation Trust

Take a break from the stress of work or school and explore the natural world around you.

Learn about Wilton's environment by walking through it with staff naturalists.

The Wilton Land Conservation Trust and the Woodcock Nature Center are working together to enrich the Wilton community. Together, we created a unique opportunity for participants to learn about Wilton's environment while walking through it with staff naturalists. As partners, we are providing opportunities for families to get out and explore the outdoors.


The Wilton Land Conservation Trust is a community-focused nonprofit organization that conserves land, protects biodiversity, enhances ecosystems, and builds community.


The Woodcock Nature Center has been a source of environmental and nature education since 1972. Its three full-time educators work with local youth to teach and develop programming designed to instill a love and respect for nature. They work with the local protected wildlife to serve as a resource for educating the community about our natural surroundings.
