Delaware Highlands Conservancy Announces Free Community Picnic
The Delaware Highlands Conservancy is pleased to announce a free community event, Saturday August 29, 2015 from 12pm-4pm in Sullivan County. Our annual Thank-You Picnic celebrates our local community of supporters and friends and provides an opportunity for the public to enjoy the beautiful rolling hills, meadows, gardens, and woods of our Bethel, NY office.
Enjoy a light lunch made with local foods, live music from the Greater Rio Bluegrass Quartet, a guided walk on our woodland trail, monarch butterflies with Ed Wesely and live animals with the Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, and outdoor games, crafts, and fun for all ages. The first 100 people to arrive will receive a free reusable water bottle.
For landowners, get your questions answered about stewarding or conserving your lands with our Land Protection Coordinator, Jennifer Sherwood.
The Conservancy's Community Picnic was supported in part with funding from a capacity grant from the New York State Conservation Partnership Program (NYSCPP) and New York's Environmental Protection Fund. The NYSCPP is administered by the Land Trust Alliance, in coordination with the state Department of Environmental Conservation.
This event is free for our members and volunteers, but prior registration is requested. If you are not a member, you have the option to join anytime on our website—or if you would like to learn more about us, we would love to meet you on August 29th.
Please call the Delaware Highlands Conservancy at 570-226-3164 or 845-583-1010, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register and receive directions.
