Two walks attract many participants

The Kent Land Trust and Kent Historical Society collaborated on two public walks in July in conjunction with this year’s exhibit, “Camps of Kent: Memories of Summer.”

A group of 60 people gathered July 25 at the former Camp Francis property, now known as the East Kent Hamlet Nature Preserve, off Kent Hollow Road.  The group split and one hiked one of the three marked trails in the preserve and the other group, many of whom were Camp Francis alumnae campers from the years of operation by the Girl Scouts.

The second walk was held July 31 at the Avian Preserve off North Kent Road on the night of the Blue Moon, the second full moon to occur in July. Children and adults alike enjoyed s’mores, and South Kent resident John Baker delighted the group of 67 by leading them in a variety of songs around the campfire.
