Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) Commissioner Daniel C. Esty is bringing his “Commissioner in Your Corner” series to Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area in Burlington, Connecticut on Friday, February 15, 2013.
 
The public is invited to join Commissioner Esty, town officials, legislators and wildlife biologists to discuss wildlife, outdoor recreational opportunities and other environmental issues during a speaking ceremony and Q & A. 
  • 4:30 pm – Greet Commissioner Esty and others
    Tour facility and visit display area including live snake demonstration by one of DEEP’s wildlife biologists
  • 5:00 p.m. – Speaking Ceremony and Q & A with Commissioner Esty
    Guests are encouraged to participate by asking questions about their environmental issues of concern
Commissioner Esty said, “Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area is a hidden jewel not far from Hartford, where visitors can travel along hiking trails year round and observe wildlife first-hand.  Purchased by the state over thirty years ago, Sessions Woods introduces visitors to wildlife and natural resources management through educational programs, interpretive trials and a backyard wildlife habitat area.
 
“The ‘Commissioner in Your Corner’ events are designed to highlight the tremendous natural resources our state enjoys and also make certain that I am available to meet and hear from the public.  The ‘Commissioner in Your Corner’ initiative is a way to accomplish both these goals. Today it gives me the opportunity to join others and talk about many important environmental issues that affect the forests within Connecticut.”
