Kestrel Community Picnic & Celebration
June 11 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Registration for this event is now closed. We are unable to accept walk-ins the day of the event. Thanks for your interest!
Please join us for a picnic dinner to celebrate the land and the people who care for it—like you!
Enjoy a picnic spread of gourmet sandwiches, salads, desserts, wine and beer. Bring a blanket or a lawn chair and enjoy the scenic views at the University of Massachusetts Amherst Renaissance Center. The Renaissance Center is the former home of Janet and Toby Dakin, two of the founders of Kestrel Land Trust in 1970. The Dakin Field, overlooking the Berkshires, has a Kestrel Trail to explore the land.
We’ll be honoring several of our many outstanding volunteers, including Judy Eiseman and Paul Beaulieu, who are both retiring after serving more than 30 years each on Kestrel Land Trust’s Board of Trustees. We will also be honoring current Board member Robert Jonas, who has served as Kestrel’s Board Chair for the past 5 years.
We will provide a few lawn games and hoola hoops for the kids, but feel free to bring your own lawn game or a frisbee!
This event will be held rain or shine: Outdoor shelter and toilet facilities will be available.
