The Connecticut State Parks is celebrating its centennial with a year-long celebration. Part of the celebration will include a 10-day trek across Connecticut by bike, kayak and foot, which is being dubbed the Centennial SoJourn (Summer OutdoorJourney).
The event kicks off on Thursday, August 15, and continues through Sunday, August 25.
The Connecticut DEEP web site says there are a number of activities throughout the 10-days that will be perfect opportunities for families to get outside and join the celebration.
There are a core group of individuals that will participate in the SoJourn from start to finish.
The “core” group will be travelling about 20 miles/day. Most of the route will be done by bike, but they will also be paddling down the Connecticut River, riding the Essex Steam Train, hiking, and camping along the shores of the Connecticut River, on the beaches of Long Island Sound and at Beardsley Zoo.
The final destination is Sherwood Island—Connecticut's first state park. A celebration will be held here to recognize everyone who completed the journey and kick-off the next phase of the State Parks Centennial Celebration.
