This could be the perfect way to start off the new year especially if you have resolved to spend more time outdoors and enjoying nature in 2016. If this is one of your resolutions, you can get off to a good start on Saturday, Jan. 2 with a guided bird walk in The Connecticut Audubon Society’s magnificent Larsen Sanctuary in Fairfield. The walk and talk is an excellent opportunity to explore the sanctuary’s varied habitats including wetlands, woodlands, ponds and meadows that are home to many species of birds.

All levels of birders, ages 12 and up, are welcome. Meet at 9 a.m. in the center’s parking lot by the trail entrance. Make sure that you dress for the weather and don’t forget your binoculars. After the walk, stop in the Nature Store to see the wide variety of identification books and other birding items that are available. The cost for this event is $2 per person. Please register in advance by calling 203-259-6305 ext. 109.
