Field Trip to Elizabeth Park and Wickham Park

Field Trip to Elizabeth Park and Wickham Park
Friday, June 10, 2016
Free to NHCC members

On Friday, June 10, 2016, the NHCC Field trip committee is organizing a field trip to Elizabeth Park in West Hartford, CT and Wickham Park in Manchester CT.   We will meet at Elizabeth Park around 9:00 am.  Please feel free to come earlier or later as it meets you needs.

Elizabeth Park is famous for its roses.  If you have not been there before, you’re in for a treat.
Wickham Park, according to its website, boasts six different themed gardens:  English, Scottish, Cabin, Oriental, Italian, Lotus, Wetlands, and Rhododendron.

Additionally, the park is home to a variety of display birds: turkeys, pheasants, peafowl, owls, waterfowl, and exotic chickens.

That is not all!!!  The park also shelters turkey vultures, Red-Tailed hawks, Canadian geese, and a Great Horned owl, all migratory birds unreleasable to the wild due to injury. All of the many birds are kept in the park's aviary where the public can view and learn about them.

Come and enjoy the fun.  Stay for an hour, two hours, or spend the day.

Questions?  Jan Doyle is the point person for this trip.  Email her at jmdteach@comcast.net or call her at 203.314.3095.



Please let Jan know if you plan on attending. Sign up at a meeting or contact Jan. More details will be emailed as the date draws nearer.  Hope to see ya’ll
