The Community Calendar is a local resource for all residents and visitors and has quickly become one of the most visited pages on the site.

Earth Day Wildlife Release and Guided Walk
April 22, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Join the New Canaan Canaan Land Trust and Wildlife in Crisis as we celebrate Earth Day with a guided walk and wildlife release. This family-friendly event is free and open to the public. Participants should meet at the trailhead for NCLT’s Livingston-Higley Preserve, located at the end of Apple Tree Lane.
At 5pm, we’ll hit the trail for a short guided walk, led by NCLT Director, Aaron Lefland. Aaron will teach participants how to read the forested landscape, using clues (both natural and man-made) to identify changes and disturbances that have impacted our landscape.
Following the guided walk, we will be joined by Wildlife in Crisis, who will release a rehabilitated Peregrine Falcon. This beautiful bird was brought to Wildlife in Crisis after sustaining life-threatening injuries, but has been nursed back to health and is ready for another shot at life.
