On June 8, 2014, Darien Land Trust hosted a “celebration day” in Dunlap/ Selleck’s Woods that engaged people of all ages in education activities that celebrate the beauty of our woods and parklands.

On hand were musicians, artists, refreshments, and exhibits for topics including birds, butterflies, amphibians, trees, invasive plants, and local environmental improvements.

This event has proven to be a wonderful way to explore our nearly two miles of trails through a 50-acre nature preserve. There are seven distinct ecosystems ranging from densely wooded areas to ponds, marshes, swamps, streams and even prairie pockets.
