Event Details

"Not all those who wander are lost"
J.R.R.Tolkien
Those who attend this program will be treated to a modern day adventure. In March last year, Sam Ducharme set out on a 2180 mile, 14 state backpacking trip from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Mt. Katahdin Maine. During his six month journey he documented the rugged beauty of the Appalachian Mountains, the wildlife, the hardships encountered on the trail, as well as the people, culture and humanity at its finest. Come join him as he takes you through the trail towns, over the mountaintops and through the back country. The images and stories will leave you with a renewed awe of the beauty of our country and its people.

You will also see his gear, how he cooked, and hear what it is like sleeping in a hammock for six months through three seasons.

Sam Ducharme is a retired K9 Officer and a lifelong resident of Connecticut.

Following the talk, there is an opportunity to take a hike in the area, lead by members of the Wintonbury Land Trust.

Registration is appreciated.
