Live From A Forest: Discussing Hiking, Archaeology, Invasives & Connecticut's Trails

Aug 9, 2012

There are more than 800 miles of Blue-Blazed Hiking Trails in Connecticut. Today we're doing our show from one of them. 

Hiking those trails, you can pass an old Tory hideout from the American revolution and, not terribly far away, the sprawling home owned by Mike Tyson and 50 Cent. There are things out in the woods that might surprise you, and one of the guys walking down the trail to visit us today is our state archeologist, who's still uncovering the mysteries of Connecticut distant past. But we're also going to talk about the ecosystem of the trails and woods and about their newest unwelcome visitor, the emerald ash borer. We also hope to provides lots of good hiking tips and a few warnings about what to watch out for. So put on some [smack] bug spray and join us out in the woods. Leave your comments below, e-mail colin@wnpr.org or Tweet us @wnprcolin. *Special thanks to Tucker Ives, Lydia Brown and Gene Amatruda*
