Wintergreen Brook Walk

Learn about efforts to improve water quality, public access, and habitat along the Brook and across the West River Watershed. Along the walk, expect to encounter thorny plants, illegally dumped garbage (which we will clean up -- we will provide garbage bags), and steep slopes. This walk is appropriate for young people & adults ages 13 and up. Meet at Common Ground’s parking lot, and bring snacks and water. Co-Sponsored by Common Ground’s West River Stewards, the New Haven Bioregional Group, and the West River Watershed Coalition.
