Environmental Conservation with our Community Partners

egrets

From 1 to 4 p.m. outside the Innis Arden Cottage, you will have a chance to connect with many of the wonderful community groups and organizations in Greenwich and the surrounding area which organize water sports and other environmental and naturalist pursuits. Some examples:

  • Come see the progress on the restoration of the stone and shingle Cow Barn, the second project of the Greenwich Point Conservancy. This project will be transformative, creating a magnificent gateway to historic Greenwich Point.
  • Learn about the ecological aspects of astronomy such as reducing light pollution with the Astronomical Society of Greenwich, and check out what can be seen through telescopes (solar observation, finding the crescent Moon, Venus, and perhaps even Jupiter in the daytime sky).
  • Archeologist Ernest Wiegand, a Professor at Norwalk Community College, who will bring a variety of local artifacts and can answer questions about any treasures you find while exploring the park. Librarians from Perrot Library will bring books about the history and ecology of Greenwich Point and the Sound as well as information about summer activities at the library.
  • Find out all about birds and other wildlife in our local ecosystem from  Greenwich Audubon and Wild Wings, a local wildlife rehabilitation center. These organizations will also explain volunteer opportunities and information about what you can do if you find injured birds.
