Fall events in eastern Connecticut and Massachusetts

Walking weekends Oct. 8-11, and 15-17, 2004. for further information, see the Heritage Corridor web site.

They have a link to an Adobe Acrobat document with all the details. Unfortunately, such documents are not, as far as I know, open to users who rely on screen readers. Select the link to the printable version and pull up a word document with much the same information, but not images - including no map. For those who are familiar with eastern connecticutk, however, a map is not much needed to find the start areas.

There are dozens of walks with a variety focuses (ok, ok, foci -- but I speak English, not Latin!) for instance a leisurely walk through a bird sanctuary in Pomfret, an easy 1-hour walk with the City historian of Norwich; a visit to a dairy herd in Preston and a trek through a nearby corn maze (that would be the amazing 'maize' maze).

More than a half dozen of the walks are accessible to wheelchairs. On a few of them, well-behaved, leashed dogs (with well-behaved owners!) are permitted.
