Annual Winter Festival and Artisan Market Saturday, February 2nd, 11 AM - 3 PM
What better way to spend a winter day than enjoying quality, fun time with your family and community at the Preserve? From sledding and ice skating, to live rescue demonstrations, we’ll have outdoor activities for everyone to enjoy. Warm up inside with hot cocoa and food, take part in our upcycling workshop (turning “trash” into beautiful, functional art) for children of all ages (including children at heart!), and shop for hand-crafted treasures from our local vendors.

Owl Prowl Saturday, March 9th, 5:30 - 7:30 PM with Kelly Martin, Wildlife Rehabilitator
Local wildlife rehabilitator, Kelly Martin, will begin with an indoor showing of her live, rescued owls and will share the wonders of these incredible birds with the community. Then, the Prowl will venture outdoors, where we will keep our eyes and ears open in search of owls in the wild. Bring headlamps or flashlights if you'd like (red lights preferred). All ages are welcome! Suggested donation: $5 non-members, members and children under 12 free Space limited, registration required

Charlotte Malmborg of the New York State Hemlock Initiative at Cornell University will begin with an indoor presentation on the risks eastern forests face from the invasive Hemlock Woolly Adelgid and the role that citizen scientists can play in their protection. We will then take an easy hike around Lincoln Pond to assess the health of the hemlocks in our forests and talk about the incredibly important role that hemlocks play in natural ecosystems. This is a free event and suitable for land stewards of all ages. Registration is not required but is helpful in our planning.
