Calling all volunteers to the beautiful but little-known Russell Preserve, located on High Ridge Road.  We need extra hands to tackle an invasion of bittersweet vines along the pond shore and to plant native plants in its place.  Please bring a pair of loppers and work gloves (some will be provided) and RSVP for parking tips and weather related information: or 914-205-3533

Tour the forests, meadow, and vernal pool at the Armstrong Preserve and Education Center and make new discoveries in its outdoor classrooms with our naturalist guide.   This is the best time of year to get an up-close view of the wide variety of native flowering plants growing in our deer exclosures, which Krista can help you to identify and even propagate.  Visit the off-the-grid Armstrong House and its Working Backyard with gardens, native plant nursery, green roof, and composting system.  Learn how you can live lighter on the land in a balance with nature right here in Pound Ridge!  Parking is available at the top of the driveway at 1361 Old Post Road, Pound Ridge.  RSVP to or call 914-205-3533.
