The North Branford Land Conservation Trust will be holding a ribbon cutting ceremony at a new Preserve this Saturday, December 1st, with a hike at 9:30 and the ribbon cutting at 11:00. This new preserve is the Harrison Farm Preserve, 95 North Street, North Branford, CT. I planted a box! Check out AQ#300361.
I wanted to pass the word along that the Harrisons and the NBLCT will be delighted to have letterboxes planted in this woodland. I hope you will come visit and possibly plant!

Great news! And thank you for planting this new letterbox for the Illinois Bicentennial virtual event. We need about 40 more to reach our goal of 200 boxes -one box for each year Illinois has been a State! R and I have something in common- both of us grew up in Illinois!

Yay! This is good to know. We live in Northford, but are unable to make the hike on Saturday, but we will definitely be going soon! We have a series in mind to plant, so maybe this will be the perfect spot.

I'm sure you will enjoy this Preserve. It has interesting features and you are bound to find good hiding places for your boxes. I think it is always an advantage to have boxes close to home so as to keep an eye on them.

Vicky Harrison drew a very good map when they were sharing the trails with their friends. I believe the NBLCT people are reproducing it. I'll check on that for you.

Nifty! I'm not sure we can make the ribbon cutting ceremony - daughter is in a dance for charity. But LOVE having something to find close by!

Don't worry one bit about not making it to the ribbon cutting ceremony. It will be a zoo. What you want is to get on the trails and find my box!! You can enjoy that even better without the crowd! ;)
