Insect Life Hike

June 11 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Join the Sleeping Giant Park Association for a guided hike exploring the wide world of insects at the Giant. Led by Ray Simpson, an entomologist at the Yale Peabody Museum, this hike will introduce participants to some of the many insects that call the Giant “home”, and their incredible adaptations and diversity.

Additional details, including registration, is forthcoming. We generally begin accepting registration one month prior to the event’s start.

Unless noted otherwise, this hike will involve traveling over uneven terrain, with some possible rock scrambling. As such, participants should be in good physical condition, dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable, supportive shoes with good traction. A day pack with snacks, water, sunscreen and any other essentials is recommended.

Out of consideration for other participants, dogs are not permitted on SGPA hikes. All hikes leave from the kiosk at the park’s main entrance, unless otherwise noted.

For additional information about this or other hikes, please contact SGPA’s hiking programs manager at [email protected].
