Guided Hike and Walking Tour of the Armstrong Preserve's Learning Landscape
Event for the Whole Family from Toddlers to Mobile Seniors
Date: Saturday, June 25th, 2016
Location: Armstrong Preserve and Education Center off Rt 121.
Our volunteers and funders have supported the development of an incredible educational resource at the Armstrong Preserve, home to valuable natural habitats such as our woodland meadow, vernal pool, and forest restoration area, and the working backyard of our resident Land Steward & Educator.
Join us for a guided tour and learn what makes this such a diverse and productive landscape and a model of habitat management. Starting from the kiosk, we will walk at a slow pace, stopping often to discuss the benefits of sustainable landscape management. Be prepared to see what organic methods can do to bring beauty, and wildlife, to your property.
The newly upgraded off-the-grid energy systems will also be showcased at this event along with newly installed monitoring, control and automation systems which facilitate advanced functionality- making the Armstrong House truly ‘smart’. The prototype has begun its second act as a flexible, optimized and tangible producer and consumer of residential domestic energy.
Parking for this event is available at the top of the driveway and along Rt 121. RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling Krista at the Armstrong Education Center’s office 914-205-3533. 1361 Old Post Rd. Pound Ridge.
