ATTENTION ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES STUDENTS:

Goodwin College is planning to make a walk in the woods in East Hartford more accessible. Located in the midst of a highly urbanized community with limited open and green spaces, Goodwin College plans to expand on an existing and planned network of trails in the area known as the South Meadows in East Hartford, Wethersfield, and Glastonbury. Goodwin is hosting a meeting on June 23, 6 p.m., at its River Campus, 195 Riverside Drive, Room 206, East Hartford. All are invited to attend and learn more about the trails.

Goodwin hopes to expand on a universal access trail development in progress, which will extend from the College to its Field Lab in the South Meadows, along the Connecticut River south to the Putnam Bridge in Glastonbury. The effort will build upon the existing network of trails along the CT River with possible connections to other trail networks in Wethersfield and Glastonbury.


To assist with the planning and construction of the trail, Goodwin College is seeking a grant from the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Recreational Trails Program. At the meeting, area residents and organizations will have the opportunity to comment on the proposed trail.
