Delaware Highlands Conservancy Announces
‘Family Tree’ Workshop Series, Summer 2014
Upper Delaware River Region, PA and NY - Join the Delaware Highlands Conservancy for a series of three free educational workshops in summer 2014. The Family Tree series will provide fun, hands-on learning outdoors in three different locations, including the new woodland trails at the Conservancy’s Bethel, NY office.
All ages are welcome, and participants may attend any or all of the sessions. Families will learn together about topics including Mapping Your Property, Plant ID and Tree Planting, Backyard Wildlife, and Forest Health. Participants will receive “Field Packs” to help them get to know their own forests and learn how to care for them, participate in craft projects such as birdhouse building and other fun activities, and learn about the wide variety of plants in their own backyards.
Program dates are June 28 - Boards to Birdhouses in Pike County, PA; July 12 -Tree Identification and Woodland Trails in Sullivan County, NY, and August 2 - Goods from the Woods in Pike County, PA, in conjunction with the annual Festival of Wood at Grey Towers National Historic Site. The programs run from 10am-1pm and snacks will be provided, but attendees are asked to bring a picnic lunch.
“I’m thrilled to be hosting a series of workshops where children of all ages can come and explore with their parents and grandparents and learn more about our local forest lands,” says Stewardship and Education Coordinator Amanda Subjin.
To reserve your space and receive directions, please call the Delaware Highlands Conservancy office at 570-226-3164 or 845-583-1010 or email email@example.com. Workshops are co-sponsored with the Grey Towers Heritage Association.
