SAVE THE DATES!

SIGNS OF LIFE IN THE WINTER LANDSCAPE

Sunday, February 26, 2017,  1 to 3 PM

Join Karen Linder for a walk through the fields of the Mapleton Preserve, looking for signs of life in the winter landscape, be they plants, animals or birds, evidence of feeding, tracks or scat.  It will probably be cold, and could be snowy or muddy, so dress for the weather, whatever it is.  Hot chocolate will be served after the walk. It is free and all are welcome, but preregistration is requested, to assure that we print enough handouts. To register, call 609-683-0483.

MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY OF SERVICE

Monday, January 16th, 2017

Over forty volunteers attacked intrusive small trees, brush, and vines, and picked up trash in the Preserve on a fair January day. Trails were cleared between some of the old tree rows, and leaves piled up along the fence were amassed for later collection. We extend our hearty thanks to our cutters, rakers, litter collectors, bushwhackers, registrars, photographers, and two people who took on special tasks–the poison ivy ambassador and the hose king!

FIRST DAY HIKE

Sunday, January 1, 2017

This was a great opportunity for five dozen people of all ages (and seven dogs) to start the new year off outdoors, with a brisk 1.5 mile loop hike through the Mapleton Preserve, into the fields on the other side of Mapleton Road, along the D&R Canal and back to the Preserve.
