On the very chilly (6-degrees with wind chill) Saturday morning of February 5th, a hardy group of about 25 eager walkers and 5 dogs assembled at Hammonasset State Park. Led along the trail by naturalist and amazing font of knowledge Ranger Russ Miller of Meigs Point Nature center, we learned about the variances of habitat where salt marsh meets woodlands. Ranger Russ pointed out an enormous oak tree surrounded by shorter thinner trees, known to arborists as a Wolf Tree. Even though nearly everyone was not-so-secretly dreaming of a hot cup of tea, we all had a stimulating and informative time. Much gratitude to Ranger Russ for sharing his morning with us!
