From Wednesday, Nov. 14, through Tuesday, Dec. 18, the following Town of Lyme and Lyme Land Conservation Trust preserves will be closed Mondays through Fridays as part of the firearms deer hunting season: Beebe Preserve, Chestnut Hill Preserve, Hand Smith, Honey Hill Preserve, Jewett Preserve, Mount Archer Woods, Eno Preserve, Pickwick’s Preserve and Plimpton Preserve. Only licensed hunters who have been granted a permit of consent for the property will be allowed in these preserves. (All of these preserves will be open to non-hunting users on Saturdays and Sundays.) Please note, however, that hunting is allowed on other properties – e.g., state and private lands – every day except Sundays. Wear bright clothing in the woods during hunting season.
