May….

Biologist Bob Kuchta and Southington Land Trust president, Al Fiorillo

On May 14 the Land Trust held its annual dinner meeting at Spartans II restaurant with guest speaker Bob Kuchta. Bob spoke about the amazing geography right here in Southington, namely the kettle bog on the Tomasso property.  Bob discovered the bog, also called a fen, from the ridge on the western side of town when he was a boy, hiking with his brothers. He spent some time trying to find out what caused the unusual arrangement of trees he was seeing.  Kettle bogs became a lifelong interest for him. He even wrote his Master’s thesis on the bog which is now a Land Trust property.

To honor his lifelong protection of the fen, land trust members had the name officially changed to the Kuchta Family Fen.  Al Fiorillo, our president, presented a plaque commemorating the naming and thanking Bob and his family for decades of protecting the fen.

An election of officers was also held at the dinner for the new fiscal year. Al will continue as president, John Fusari will be the new vice president.  Irene Murray continues as secretary and Dan Nardini continues as treasurer.


 

earthApril….In honor of Earth Day, the Southington Land Trust volunteers donated their time and effort to help clean up portions of Southington’s Rails to Trails. Clean up consisted of picking up garbage, weeding out invasives and raking up brush. Thank you also to those who showed their appreciation as they passed by and those  who joined our efforts!
