Outdoor Resources March 2020 and Trail News

Wanting  some support as you explore your backyard or Lincoln’s trails this spring? Check out a few resources that LLCT has compiled. If you don’t have a copy of our Wild About Lincoln Nature Guide, any naturalist guide will do! We also encourage you to use iNaturalist app. With the app, just take a picture and it will ID the species for you.

We encourage you to explore your backyard or neighborhood trails in the next few weeks. Some of Lincoln’s conservation areas have been heavily visited on weekends. If you are out on the trails, please remember to keep social distancing (at least 6ft from other trail users), keep dogs leashed at all times (this reduces the chance of close interaction with others), and  seek quieter trails. If a parking area is full, that means the trails are also busy. Consider finding an alternative trail. You can download trail maps and see suggested walks under the “Explore” tab on our website. Fore more updates and details about Trail Guidelines at this time, please visit the Town of Lincoln Conservation website.

Spring Scavenger Hunt (PDF)

Created by LLCT Trustee Gwyn Loud, this quick scavenger hunt highlights the beauty of our early spring landscape, and is a great “noticing” activity.


LLCT Passport (PDF)

The Passport has been a staple of trail exploration for years! Although we can’t hand out printed copies right now, you can download and fold into a booklet yourself!


Send us your photos exploring your backyard or out on a trail! We love to see photos of you and your family, interesting plants or trail features, wildlife, and more! Email to llct@lincolnconservation.org and we’ll highlight your photos in our e-newsletter.

Thank you and happy trails!
