Last month, the Highstead staff convened from across New England for an in-person outing for the first time since before the pandemic. While some team members reconnected after over a year of working apart and remotely, others met each other in person for the first time. The day consisted of team-building outdoor activities, including a paddle to Connecticut’s Outer Island, part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge.
A special thanks to our kayak guide, Eileen from Branford River Paddlesports, and Ian, our Outer Island tour guide, for sharing their knowledge and helping us have a successful gathering.
