The Naugatuck Valley Health District (NVHD) is partnering with the Kellogg Environmental Education Center for a presentation on Climate Change and a guided nature walk, in honor of National Public Health Week.
Each year, the American Public Health Association celebrates Public Health and dedicates a week of health topics. This year’s theme, “Public Health Is Where You Are”, highlights where we live impacts our communities’ health. Working together, we can build healthier communities and, eventually, the healthiest nation. We need your help to get there. Join us!
It is an honor to have Susan Quincy, the Education Outreach Coordinator for the Kellogg Environmental Education Center, share how climate change can effect our health, shoreline, and activities here in Connecticut. You will learn what changes we are experiencing, especially how it effects our health through air quality, heat, and insects.
After the presentation, guided and self-guided tours of the trails will be available to participate in. The guided hike on the red trail is a moderate level trail through a variety of habitats. This walk is for individuals able to cover some uneven and rocky ground. The self-guided walk around the pond is stroller friendly and helps little ones explore the changes we are seeing for Spring. For both trails, please wear non-slip closed toes shoes that can get muddy. It doesn’t hurt to have sun screen and bug spray handy!
We invite you to explore the trails, gardens, and the Osborne Homestead Museum after the walk while visiting NVHD’s tables with information on future programs, trainings, and giveaways! You may also bring a picnic lunch to enjoy outside, no alcohol please.
