We attended a special viewing of the documentary "Gasland 2" at Earthplace. It was the first time that we ever heard of this wonderful natural spot in Westport.

Earthplace is just a great place to drop into for a weekend hike coupled with some lessons on nature. The indoor space is really good for younger kids - and the trails outside are perfect for burning off a little energy!

We are privileged to have this wonderful place around the corner from our home. A little getaway from the daily routine and nice paths to walk on to visit nature and animals. We have also acquired their help with injured wildlife in the past. Nice walk to and through their trails many times. Recommended for everyone!

So impressed that Earthplace has 62 acres of open space and 2 miles of lovely walking trails. We loved seeing the birds of prey that are part of the permanent collection of injured birds. On the weekends it has a great playground for young children as well.

Kids love the animal rescue enclosures, the playground, and the great activities and displays in the main building. But the best regenerative thing you can do is take a nice little hike through the woods.

The animals are well cared for, the volunteers knowledgeable, and the programs are excellent. My daughter's Girl Scout troop identified the trees on one of the trails, complete with markers and descriptions on the map.
