Site Guide to Connetquot River State Park. Revised.
Palma, Alfred J.
The clean and plentiful waters of the Connetquot basin's ponds, streams and marshlands have nurtured an extraordinarily rich ecosystem which has always been prized by both Native Americans and subsequent immigrants to this country. Since 1973, 3,476 acres have been preserved as Connetquot River State Park. To aid elementary and secondary teachers in utilizing facilities and services of the Park and the Outdoor Learning Laboratory, this guide lists some of the flora and fauna seen in the Park during 1978 (over 170 species of wildflowers, more than 200 species of birds, 24 species of reptiles and 16 species of fish); describes the natural history of the area; provides a travel map and directions for reaching the Park, emergency and staff telephone numbers, and safety instructions; outlines conservation practices and conduct guidelines for teachers, students and parents; and details the teacher participation inservice training requirements and opportunities.
