Yarnbalmer Art Installation

Event Details

Beginning in April hikers can expect a bit more color on the trees at Woodcock Nature Center. An artist known only as the “Yarnbalmer” has installed crocheted yarn art along a familiar section of Woodcock trail. Visitors will enter the main trail head located across from the nature center building and, only a short distance in, will be greeted by a grove of 14 brightly wrapped trees. The installation even features silhouettes of some familiar forest creatures and beloved Woodcock animal ambassadors. According to Woodcock Executive Director Lenore Herbst, “We are always looking for new and different ways to encourage our community to experience nature. We are thrilled to welcome the warm, colorful, whimsical art of Yarnbalmer and hope everyone finds time to visit this spring.”

​The work was commissioned by Wilton and Ridgefield Magazine and will be in place at least through this summer. The Woodcock trails are open daily from dawn to dusk. Visitors are also encouraged to explore the nearly 4 miles of trails, unique nature playground and outdoor aviaries that are part of Woodcock’s 150-acre public preserve.
