Explore Stratford Point's 28 upland acres filled with grasslands,
pollinator meadows, feed plots, and a variety of shrubs and trees for
common to rare species at this beautiful coastal site. This is one of the
best places to find Monarchs in abundance in all of Connecticut, and likely
the only property in the state with two annual broods of Swarthy Skipper.
Little Yellow and Cloudless Sulphur can be found here with a variety of
hairstreaks, swallowtails, and many other skippers including unexpected or
scarce species. Easy walking on pavement and grass paths. Bring water and
sunscreen. Binoculars and a spotting scope are advisable to enjoy the
views. An office building with restrooms is on the site.
Directions: Stratford Point is located at 1207 Prospect Drive, Stratford.
It is on the left of the street before the lighthouse and the entry
driveway has a large metal gate with the address on it.
Please RSVP to Scott at skruitbosch at rtpi.org.
