Upcoming Events


Saturday, May 11th from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM the Middlebury Land Trust (MLT) is having its spring TRAILS WORK DAY. This is perfect for those interested and willing to get their hands dirty and enjoy some outdoor work while making the world a better place. All are welcome to be part of keeping trails cleared and removing invasive plants. No prior experience is required. Participants should wear gloves, long-sleeved shirts, and sturdy shoes. Bug repellant is always a good idea. If you have your own tools those are welcome; the MLT has some that can be shared. Sign up by emailing Meet at Sperry House to form teams. Event leader: Tom Cunningham.

Saturday, May 18th. from 10:00 AM - 12 noon the MLT will be hosting a guided "HIKING FOR BEGINNERS" in the Tuttle Preserve. The group is limited to 15 people and will include materials sent beforehand to advise on what to wear and bring. Because of this, pre-registration is required. There is no charge to participate. Register by emailing After an on-site orientation, the hike will take about an hour. It will be of moderate difficulty, including some hills and rocky areas, with beautiful views as it goes through a pine forest and along a stream. Hikers will learn about the different purposes for hiking, what preparation and equipment make for a safe and comfortable time in the woods, how to read trail signs, identify the various trails in this preserve, and how to enjoy them. Event leader: Kent Sullivan-Wiley.

Saturday, June 1st is Connecticut Trails Day, and in a now-yearly tradition, the MLT will be having a guided hike of the Foote Path in Middlebury, 11:00 AM- 1:30 PM. This trail is of moderate difficulty. The hike will start at 136 Breakneck Hill Road in Middlebury. MLT representatives will shuttle hikers to the start of the hike, which is at the entrance to the Sperry Preserve on Straits Turnpike. Hikers may also meet the rest of the group at the starting point but should be aware that there is very limited parking available there, and it is a very busy road. This hike is family and leash-dog friendly and is over two miles in length. The terrain includes wetlands, hills, and rocky terrain. The hike ends at Abbott Pond, which is adjacent to 136 Breakneck Hill Road. Following the hike at 1 PM, the Pulawski family invites the hikers for light refreshments at 136 Breakneck Hill Road, Middlebury. The group size is limited to 18 people. For further details and to register, please visit or you can email Event leaders: Artie Pulawski and Matthew Foote.
