Get Back To Nature At The Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center

The Hartford Courant

Maybe you're looking for a day of natural tranquility, or a place the kids will love. Either way, the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center in Mystic offers an experience not commonly found in Connecticut.

The Wildlife Sanctuary is a 300-acre preserve, with 8 miles of hiking trails. Go easy for a relaxing afternoon outdoors, or challenge yourself for an exhilarating workout in the fresh air.

The Denison Homestead Museum is a national treasure, dating back to 1717. The Homestead stretches over 140 acres, and is part of the original land grant given to Capt. George Denison for his service to the Pequot militia.

The Nature Center offers week long Summer Nature Camp sessions from June to August, for children ages 4-12.
