I may be making a day trip to CT soon...nit sure I'll have time, but can you suggest ome natural areas to visit?

If things go as planned, I will be near Winsted. I guess I'm thinking of any natural areas...surprise me.

Interior, Shannon Audubon Center or White Memorial (can also use an inflatable boat at White Memorial if you get tired of hiking). They have staff to answer any questions. Nepaug, American legion, and People's forests will all be close but get detailed directions in advance. Coastal,you could rent a kayak and put in at Charles Wheeler Marsh or Long River. I know I saw a public access point on a dead end road in Milford, I believe it was Court St. There's no sign for it until you reach the very end of the road. Audubon Coastal Center also has a kayak tour but I can't say if it's worthwhile or not. These guys are another kayak provider but again can't say one way or the other Kayak tours. I would consider going down East River. You could also put in an inflatable at the Audubon Guilford Salt Meadow Marsh. Tunxis State Forest would be another place for hiking as would Mt. Tom.

Thank you for the suggestions, midwesternerr. I doubt I'll have much time to actually do anything, but at least I can try.
