Volunteer at Clark Preserve on December 2

Our volunteer team meets on Saturday, December 2 to extend this section of bog bridge across a seasonally wet meadow at Clark Preserve on Autumn Ridge Road in Pound Ridge (link to map).  Volunteers are needed to carry in materials to the work site and to clear invasive species that are encroaching upon this beautiful area, located deep within the Preserve in the northeastern end.  Please register if you would like to join us for this session as we may meet earlier or later than our usual time of 10am, depending on the weather.  Email Krista at or call 914-205-3533.

Guided Hike at Eastwoods Preserve

Sunday, November 12, 2pm.  We will practice tree and nut identification on this family-friendly hike along the one-mile loop trail at Eastwoods Preserve (link to map).  Eastwoods was purchased by the Town of Pound Ridge in 2009 and is maintained by a partnership between the Pound Ridge Conservation Board and the PRLC.  The forest is rich in Mountain laurel, ferns, moss and often mushrooms, giving it a fairly-land quality.  The trails are tighter and more twisting than most, a joy to hike on a fall day.  Please register with Krista at or call 914-205-3533.  Parking is limited at the Preserve parking lot at 134 Eastwoods Road, so please carpool if you can.


November Volunteer Work Session at Richards Preserve

Volunteers are needed to reign triumphant over the last bit of invasive species in this otherwise pristine nature preserve.  Please wear long sleeves and pants to be prepared to engage in battle and gain victory over the last remaining patch of Japanese barberry, and earn a well-deserved badge of glory for your efforts.  Yes, we will have temporary tatttoos available for the best, or any, volunteers.  No joke, this is a beautiful place for hiking and enjoying the ecology of Pound Ridge.  With your help, we can keep it this way.  Please contact Krista for more information at or 914-205-3533.

Here is a pic of last year’s crew.  They were a hardy bunch but I think we can best them (not really – they were awesome, but we will try).
