With Town fields and recreational facilities closed and the NRVT often overcrowded, we are encouraging residents to discover other ways to be in the fresh air in a healthy, socially responsible way. To encourage residents to choose less traveled public access trails in our natural open spaces, we are announcing the Explore Wilton Walking Trails Program. We are hopeful this program will introduce you to new walking trails and help others learn about the trails in a fun way.
Step 1 -- Visit and explore at least 10 of Wilton’s open space parks.
Step 2 - Create a short video (30 seconds max) telling us about your experience. Share footage of you on the trails, show us how you practice social distancing while hiking -- be creative and have fun!
Step 3 -- Like and Follow @wiltonconservationcommission on both Facebook and Instagram, and accept our Follow-back and Friend requests.
Step 4 -- Post and Share your video to Facebook or Instagram and tag @wiltonconservationcommission and add #wiltonconservationcommission to your Comment. By tagging @wiltonconservationcommission in your post, you give us permission to re-post to these social media accounts and the Town of Wilton website.
Before you venture out onto a walking trail, don’t forget to:
- check the trail map online or posted at trail site kiosks;
- practice social distancing while hiking;
- wear tick repellent.
