With summer camp now in session through August 20, the area near the Woodcock Nature Center’s buildings and pavilion are being used daily by the centers’ campers between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The playground at the Nature Center is also closed during all hours of the camps.

The staff at the Nature Center encourage residents to use the Nature Center’s orange trail, and also the Southern end of its preserve, for recreation during all of the hours of the camp because “it will be more peaceful,” the Nature Center said in a release.

The Nature Center’s main building and offices remain closed to the public at all times, as they have been since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Woodcock Nature Center is located at 56 Deer Run Road in Wilton, and on the town’s border with Ridgefield.
