  1. Hello! I would very much like to join you, assuming I can find my car keys (I think they are locked in my trunk 😢). Can you please tell me in which direction to will be working from the access point, in case I am a bit late? This is so embarrassing- Peace and gratitude,

    • Hi Kimberly,
      If you are coming on the trail from the trailhead beyond the Marina, you will take the trail along the dirt road past the house on the left, go beyond the I-91 bridge, keep going another 1/2 mile maybe, until you see a little wooden sign on the left side of the trail that says Riverstone Preserve. If you’re not late, keep walking another 1/2 mile or so, until you see an open area on the right side of the trail where a dirt road comes down to intersect with the trail. This is the Fox Farm Rd access trail. That’s where we will meet at 9:30. If you’re late, we’ll be working back in the direction you came from–on the Riverstone Preserve. You’ll see another sign saying Riverstone Preserve and shortly after there is a narrow trail going off to the right. It loops around the Preserve–we will be working in the woods in that area. Look for a map at the kiosk in the map holder. If there are maps there, you can take a look at the map and see where to meet us, and where we will be working on the Riverstone Preserve. I hope you find us! Thank you for your interest in joining us. Kathleen
