In honor of Earth Day 2016, Mayor Daniel T. Drew in conjunction with athletes from Unified Sports Special Olympics will be making an announcement at the Guida Farm Conservation Area in Middletown on Friday, April 22nd. Athletes from Unified Sports Special Olympics will be traveling to the Guida Farm Conservation Area to enjoy some of the area’s scenic trails. The Mayor is excited to officially announce the release of the 2016 Middletown trail guide and to also present on some of the City’s environmental initiatives and efforts to encourage the use of open space. We encourage all to attend. The Unified Sports Special Olympics hike will commence around 10:30 followed by the Mayor’s announcement at 11:30.
On Saturday, April 23rd, also in honor of Earth Day, the City’s Conservation Commission will hosted a guided walk at the Guida Farm Conservation Area at 9 a.m. (raindate 4/23 at 9 a.m.). A naturalist will be on hand with a table of animal artifacts. An information presentation on the area's geology will kick off the event, led by Elisabeth Holder and Kim Antol. The guided walk around the fields and woods of Guida will take place right after. Walkers should expect a gentle terrain, with spots that can get muddy at times.
The Guida Farm Conservation Area is located at the intersection of Round Hill Road and Coleman Road in the City of Middletown.
