Partnered with Groton Utilities We Offer Elusive Hikes
Our O.A.T.S. Group has been taking advantage of some elusive hikes in our area. Several months ago, we partnered with Groton Utilities staff to provide guided hikes at the local reservoirs. Only G.U. can provide us access to the reservoirs. Our group has been on varying lengths of hikes at both Ledyard Reservoir and Groton Reservoir. The scenery is striking and the education is splendid.
At least once a month we have had a walk/hike with our Groton Utilities partners. We are scheduled to continue to do so in well into 2016 as well. At this juncture, both partners are looking into acquiring walking sticks and snowshoes to keep our hikes going even in the depth of winter. By the way, we hear that is when the Eagles return to our local reservoirs.
Our last hike, was an eye opening tour of the G.U.
Water Treatment Plant and then a hike of about 2 miles along the Groton Reservoir. We were not only fascinated by the information we received but of the reservoirs scenery. By the way, asking for a bottle of water at a water treatment plant is a no-no. Yet, they are big on refilling water bottles.
