White Memorial Foundation located on 80 White Hall Road in Litchfield is finishing out the month of December with a few lovely events that have become traditions.
In the spirit of the holidays, White Memorial Foundation is offering a free week of entrance to the museum for kids ages 12 and under from December 21 to December 27 when accompanied by an adult.
To unwind from the holiday stress, why not take a hike on December 24 to Apple Hill and Cat Swamp with Gerri Griswold. You can begin this Eve of all Eves with Gerri and Bradley as they sojourn to Apple Hill and Cat Swamp in search of comfort and joy. Return to the Ceder Room for Hot Chocolate and Something Home-baked. Sing Christmas carols too! 8:00 A.M., Meet in front of the A. B. Ceder Room. We'll drive to the trailhead together.
The Wild and Wacky winter camp for grades 1 - 6 is back from December 28 - 30. If your kids are looking for a great way to spend their holiday break, why not spend it in an outdoor classroom! Nature has so much to offer in the winter! So, grab your coat, boots, and hat and let's explore the wild and wacky wildlife of winter! Snack and drink will warm us up between adventures.

On the last day of the year, White Memorial is offering the 4th annual winter walk along the lake and Butternut Brook Trails with Marlow Shami. Join Marlow as she leads you to the observation platform overlooking Connecticut's largest natural lake, Bantam! View the relics of what was once one of New England's largest Ice Houses. The relics are fascinating, so too the history. Pass by the slow moving Butternut Brook. Enjoy a landscape filled with the sounds of dry beach tree leafs fluttering, old stone walls traverse the forest, admire a stunning multi-trunked oak, tiptoe by a tiny princess fern colony. Indulge yourself in the sights, scents, and sounds of winter. Take in nature's restorative powers! 10 A.M., Meet in front of the A.B. Ceder Room.
