Join us on Thursday, June 22, at 9 am for a walk to Andreozzi Nature Preserve and Lombardi Park. These two conservation areas are within 100 yards of each other off the East Bay Bike Path. Both properties are owned and managed by the Barrington Land Conservation Trust.

The terrain is gentle but may be wet in places. The guided walk will last about 45 minutes. All ages are welcome.


The walks will be led by Jerry and Ginny Gonville, who are avid bird watchers and Land Trust volunteers. Jerry is the property steward for both properties.

Andreozzi Nature Preserve

Andreozzi Nature Preserve

Andreozzi Nature Preserve was donated by Annie J. Andreozzi in memory of her husband, Emilio L. Andreozzi, for the purpose of establishing and maintaining a unique natural area where plants, birds and other forms of animal life could be protected.

She also wished to have the property used to further public knowledge and appreciation of plants, animals and natural resources.

Lombardi Park

Lombardi Park

Salvatore Lombardi and his wife Josephine emigrated from Italy to Barrington in 1924. He worked at the Barrington Brickyard and became a skilled stone mason and, together with their family, they grew a construction and real estate development business.

Lombardi Park was donated by Salvatore Lombardi, Jr., Anthony Lombardi and Joseph Lombardi in 2004. The site includes Little Echo Lake, where many members of the Lombardi family swam in their youth.
