On Friday, Sep. 20, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., take a river cruise onboard the RiverQuest to view the miraculous display as thousands of swallows congregate above an island in the Connecticut River – as they suddenly descend as one to roost as the sun sets. The cruise departs from Eagle Landing State Park in Haddam at 5:00 p.m. sharp and returns about three hours later. Expert birders and naturalists onboard will share insightful observations about the swallows and other wildlife, including bald eagles. If the trip is canceled due to inclement weather, refunds will be provided. The cruise is open to Lyme Land Trust members and friends. The cost is $50 per person, which includes wine, cheese and light refreshments. No children under 10. Preregistration and prepayment is required. For complete information, go here.
The Lyme Volunteer Fair will be held on Sunday, Oct. 23, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Lyme Public Library, where more than 30 Lyme-affiliated nonprofits, associations, boards and commissions will be on hand with opportunities for local residents to volunteer and be of service to our town.
