This fundraiser is organized by Ryan Carrigan, a sophomore at NW Region 7 High School, with the help of fellow students. Ryan has been a volunteer at Aton Forest for many years and you may have seen his picture in some of our emails over the years. This is his third year fundraising through the Kindness In Motion Program and we are grateful he chose Aton Forest to be the organization to support.

The money raised will support our education program and Ryan and others will develop a second self-guided trail for us. We plan on having students use the trial for nature study at a grand opening in the fall.

Please join us for this friendly and fun gathering!
And, sorry, there will be no wine or soda at this event.

We want to thank:
Northwest Regional School 7, its teachers and administrators for giving its students the opportunity to participant in the Kindness In Motion program;
Woodcreek Bar and Grill Restaurant in Norfolk for its donation and other contributions;
and, those who have bought tickets, and those could not attend but generously gave donations.
THANK YOU ALL!

Owl Prowl & Wildlife Walk

Winter Weekend In Norfolk, Saturday, February 23rd
Meet at Aton Forest, 270 North Colebrook Road, Norfolk, CT

Winter is a great time to see animals, or at least their signs. We will begin with an Owl Prowl at 4 am, starting at AF Hq (270 North Colebrook Rd, Norfolk). Then from 9 am to 12 pm we'll be looking for wildlife at Aton Forest (meet at AF Hq). We will track wild animals, observe birds, check porcupine dens and maybe walk out to see a beaver lodge if the ice is good. This is a kid-friendly program and part of Winter Weekend In NorfolkYou'll be amazed at what you discover by getting outdoors and following your curiosity! Wear wear clothes and boots, preferably with added ice grips or cleats (such as Yactrax). It will be cold with ice and snow along the roadsides and in the woods.
These are free events, but please RSVP.
