May 20 Guided Hike at Halle Ravine, 2pm

Please register ahead for this popular hike in one of Pound Ridge Land Conservancy’s best-loved preserves, the Halle Ravine.  This year, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Halle Ravine’s preservation as a cultural and natural history landmark in Pound Ridge.  Learn what steps we have taken to protect this rare, old-growth forest grove for future generations and how you can support those efforts.  Bring your children or grandchildren – all ages are welcome and will find joy and inspiration on our hike.  Expect to see frogs, turtles, birds, and very large trees.

May 5, 2018 Volunteer Work Session at Halle Ravine, 10am to noon

Old and new volunteers will enjoy working in this beautiful nature preserve on any number of projects we have lined up for this season.  Tree fall took it toll on bridges, trails, and benches late this winter and repairs will continue into May.  We also need volunteers to help maintain forest and watershed health by removing invasive species in an emerging canopy gap off-trail in the preserve.  Participants can learn to identify native vs. non-native invasive species, and how to manage them, and will see and hear birds, frogs, and other signs of Spring.  All ages are welcome.  Parking is available at the preserve entrance on Trinity Pass near the intersection with Donbrook Road.  Please plan to arrive by 10am or find us along the trail.  Please direct questions to Krista at landsteward.educator@prlc.net or call 914-205-3533.
