Greenberg Family Conservation Area BIG Trail Day
November 12, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
We’re at it again! Following our major trail day in July, Kestrel is gearing up to build on that success–come join us!
Our new 65-acre Westhampton property has a user-made trail system that needs to be improved and formalized. We’re mounting our second “Big Day” of trail work, with several Kestrel-led crews taking on tasks throughout the property, including improving existing footpaths, installing blazes and signs, and getting rid of some invasive plants. We’re looking or a big turnout of folks who want to make a significant impact!
Trail work will take place in the morning from 9 am to approximately 12:30 pm. Then you are welcome to stay for a picnic lunch onsite and explore the property’s lovely woods with its wildlife, “fairy trees,” and gorgeous shady brook.
AND, volunteers will have a special treat during lunch: Two young oxen trained for stewardship work will give a demo of their skills, led by Kestrel Board member, Tom Jenkins and his son. The oxen team, named Timber and King, will be helping with a clean-up task in the forest that morning, along with a local Boy Scout troop.
