The Delaware Highlands Conservancy announces a free community event, Sept. 6 from noon to 4 p.m. in Sullivan County.

The annual Thank-You Picnic celebrates their local community of supporters and friends and provides an opportunity for the public to enjoy the rolling hills, meadows, gardens, and woods of the Bethel, N.Y. office.

A light lunch made with local foods, educational programs, live music from the Sullivan County Americana band Little Sparrow (bring your instrument and jam), and outdoor games, crafts, and fun for all ages will be offered. Enter to win in the annual kayak raffle (an Old Town Heron 9' kayak and paddle, generously donated by Alice's Wonderland in Greeley).

Then, join Amanda Subjin, the Conservancy’s Stewardship & Education Coordinator, for a walk on woodland trails on the 119-acre protected property. Learn how to identify common trees and forest plants in the Upper Delaware River region and about the property’s conservation easement that protects this piece of farm and woodland from development and subdivision.

This event is the continuation of a plan to turn the Conservancy’s New York field office into an outdoor classroom complete with trails, herb and pollinator gardens, and wildflower meadows. The project is made possible in part through an Environmental Initiatives Grant from Sullivan Renaissance.

This event is free for our members and volunteers, but registration is required. 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 September 6th.

Call the Delaware Highlands Conservancy at 570-226-3164 or 845-583-1010, or email info@delawarehighlands.org to register and receive directions.

The Delaware Highlands Conservancy works with landowners and communities to protect the healthy lands, clean waters, eagles and other wildlife, and locally sustainable economies of the Upper Delaware River region.
