    Stonington Land Trust hosts walk, talk at Miner Preserve

    STONINGTON — The Stonington Land Trust will hold a guided walk through the Thomas Miner Nature Preserve and Wildlife Sanctuary, 236 Taugwonk Road, on Saturday, Sept. 28, at 11 a.m.

    A year-long wildlife and botanical survey is currently being conducted at the sanctuary. Bruce Fellman, a naturalist and professional photojournalist who is one of the survey volunteers, will be the guide. He has used his camera to document the amphibians, reptiles, dragonflies, butterflies and other species on the preserve. He’ll share his photographic tips and techniques.

    It will be the peak of the autumn migration season and participants should be able to see and “capture” images of migrating hawks, monarch butterflies and other insects, which will be leaving for warmer climates. The biology of migration will be discussed.

    The walk will be approximately 1½ hours long, on flat terrain with frequent stops. All ages are welcome on this free walk. Participants should wear sturdy footwear, long slacks, sleeves and tick repellent, as well as bring a camera, binoculars, trail snacks and water.
