A special new trail that spans several southern Connecticut towns was recently officially blazed and open to the public. The best part? It is named after one of our Center namesakes, the inspirational Richard H. Goodwin! In honor of this trail and the environmental leadership trail he blazed, we will be doing a blog series interviewing environmental leaders as we hike sections of the Richard H. Goodwin trail together. Our first section will feature Brian Toal, Supervising Epidemiologist in the Environmental Health Section at CT Department of Environmental Health, and Past President of the Hartford Audubon Society.
Stay tuned and be ready to be inspired.
