NORWALK, Conn. – Saturday was a time of the sign at Oak Hills Park.
Members of the Friends of Oak Hills Park descended upon the park on National Public Lands Day and posed in front of the park’s newly placed Nature Trails sign at head of the Oak Hills Nature Trail, which loops through the woodland area of the park behind the parking lot of Oak Hills Restaurant on the Green.
The Friends of Oak Hills Park have been holding Saturday morning nature walks for the past 10 months and have blazed and improved the trails in the Oak Hills woodlands, according to a press release from the Friends. The group plans to create markers to identify some of the area’s old trees and other natural features.
The next goal of the Friends, the release stated, is to petition the Conservation Commission and Norwalk Common Council to designate the Oak Hills Woodlands as permanently protected open space. The group has a petition for that drive on its website.
