Madison Land Conservation Trust Early Birding Hike

Madison Land Conservation Trust Early Birding Hike, Rt 80 and Summer Hill Rd, Madison , CT , 06443

Sunday March 11 at 1:00 Madison Land and Conservation Trust will hold an Early Birding hike on the recently acquired Summer Hill property. The MLCT took ownership of 77 acres of open space located at the intersection Route 80 and Summer Hill Road. The land, within a large watershed, is a gateway to north Madison’s rural beauty, connecting thousands of acres of open space owned by public and private entities along Summer Hill Road. The land was owned for many years by Jane Bauermeister, who passed the property on to her children at her death several years ago. The Bauermeister children retained the site of the Bauermeister homestead and sold the 6.4-acre parcel on the east side of Summer Hill Road. Development is restricted on the retained parcel, thereby preserving the scenic value of the area. The original homestead was the center of many art and music festivals organized by Mrs. Bauermeister during her lifetime. Mrs. Bauermeister referred to her homestead as ‘Birdland’ which is reminiscent of the many species of birds found in the area of Summer Hill.
The temporary trailhead is located at the corner of Rt 80 east of Summer Hill Rd (north). Parking is at 661 Old Toll Rd (Rt 80). Bring binoculars and cameras to take photos for the 2012 MLCT Photo Contest. More information about Summer Hill and other MLCT trails can be found at www.madisonlandtrust.org

5:00 pm

Connecticut Lyric Opera presents COSI FAN TUTTE

Garde Arts Center, 325 State Street, New London, CT , 06320

Cosi Fan Tutte (“Thus do all women”), the perfect opera for those who prefer their laughter sandwiched with a slice of wry, is a deliciously ironic look at the foibles of love. We begin with two sisters, their fiancés, and a bet—Will the women be faithful? Thus we enter a world of disguises and trickery in which the women—and Love itself—are put to the test. Mozart’s genius turns a farce into a scintillating blend of thought provoking humor. Presented in Italian with English supertitles and orchestra.
