Event Description

Please join us for a 3 mile stroll through Fair Haven, mainly along the Quinnipiac River. We will observe local flora and fauna; hear about historic, present and future human interactions with the river; and learn about how the Chatham Square Neighborhood Association got its trail and how CSNA encourages residents to walk in their community.


Bring your interest and knowledge of watersheds in general and the Quinnipiac River in particular. Also wear appropriate footwear and bring drinking water. Most of the walk will be on level urban sidewalks. A portion of the walk will be in two linear parks along the river. There will be at least one stop (Boathouse Cafe) and plenty of opportunities to share your knowledge and love of our beautiful river.


We will begin promptly at 10am on Saturday September 17. Gather at Quinnipiac River Park, near the intersection of Grand Avenue with Front Street, a map is linked above. There is plenty of free parking on Front Street, across the street from the Quinnipiac River Park.  The tour will end at the starting point. 


Stroll leader: Lee Cruz is the Community Outreach Director at The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. Lee develops strategies for civic engagement and non-profit agency outreach, builds strategic partnerships with and among communities, businesses and  nonprofit  organizations. He also manages The Foundation’s Neighborhood Leadership Programs.  As a Fair Haven resident, he is a founding member of the Chatham Square Neighborhood Association, an organization that has been key in the establishment of Fair Haven’s reputation as a thriving New Haven neighborhood.
