Join Ken Elkins, Audubon Connecticut's community conservation manager, and other Audubon staff and volunteers for an exciting adventure in search of Owls! This fun-filled outing will be led by Bent of the River Audubon Center in partnership with the Southbury Land Trust at Philips-Lovdal Farm Preserve in Southbury.
Phillips Farm, acquired by Southbury Land Trust in 2002, is 105 acres of panoramic ridgeline views, pastoral meadows, uncommon old-growth forest, an old apple orchard, and delicate marshland and wetland areas. Located on unpaved Sanford Road, where the popular author Gladys Taber lived and wrote about the pleasures of country living, Phillips Farm is a scenic emblem of Southbury's rural past.
