Keep Calm and Go Birding

Bird & Hike with CT Land Trusts is a community engagement program to provide communities of color and other underserved communities with opportunities for guided birding and hiking on land trust properties. The program goals include nurturing lifelong connections and creating a sense of belonging and comfort in the outdoors. Underwriting support provided by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology (2022) and the Schumann Foundation (2023).
