Earlier this week I decided to take a walk at the Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area located on Route 69 in Burlington. This is a great place to take the family on a nature walk. I have been coming here for many years to walk my dogs. There are many sites to see while traversing the trails here including a 38-acre wetland with a beaver dam, a 25-foot observation tower, a waterfall, a vernal pool, a bat shelter, and much more!
