Family Fun Walk, Picnic and Concert at Cross Lots

The Essex Land Trust will hold its annual Cross Lots picnic and concert on Sunday June 5, 2011 starting at 4 p.m. From 4-5 p.m. join naturalist Phil Miller and Jen Crown from Park and Rec as they lead special walks through the property.

Phil will focus on environmental points of interest and Jen Crown from Park and Rec will concentrate on fun (but educational) games and scavenger hunts for kids of all ages. At 5pm, find a spot on the hill to listen to the Essex Corinthian Jazz Band. Bring your picnic, blankets and chairs. After the band finishes playing, the Land Trust will unveil an updated plaque of Conservators for Life.

The Essex Land Trust has partnered with Essex Park and Recreation Department as part of the Essex Great Outdoor Pursuit, with the mission of bringing the families of Essex together through positive and healthy outdoor endeavors while increasing the presence and awareness of our local parks, open space and preserves to the community.  The event is also part of the 19th Annual Connecticut Trails Day Celebration promoted by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association.

Cross Lots is situated across from the Essex Library on West Avenue; parking is at the Essex Town Hall, 29 West Avenue. The event is free and open to the public. Bad weather cancels.
