To enhance and encourage the public use and awareness of Sessions Woods
Located in Burlington, Connecticut, Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area is a 700-acre tract of natural land set aside for wildlife that also serves to introduce visitors to wildlife and natural resources management through educational programs, demonstration sites, and self-guided hiking trails and displays.
Friends of Sessions Woods was established to facilitate projects and programs
that are designed to enhance the value of Sessions Woods as a resource for
education, research and the enjoyment of nature. The organization has sponsored
such activities as birdhouse building workshops, fall foliage wagon rides, and
annual meetings with guest speakers. Money raised from the organization's
activities is used to fund special projects that enhance the public's experience
on the property. In addition, the organization applies for grants. Funds
received to date have been used to purchase education equipment, and to print a
forty-page guidebook [written by a high school student who sits on the Board]
about the property.
