What’s on tap with the Pound Ridge Land Conservancy in 2018? Our Land Steward and Educator, Krista Munger, will present a series of free educational and service events at PRLC nature preserves starting with our annual Citizen Science and Volunteer Forum on February 25 at the Armstrong Preserve and Education Center. We will feature local turtle conservation projects that incorporate volunteers and will be recruiting interns and volunteers for our summer program. Letters of interest about internships may be addressed to Krista at firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers of all ages are always welcome. We hold our first Saturday volunteer work session on March 3 at 10am at the Clark Preserve. Please register ahead to receive notice of cancellation or change due to weather.
Hiking trails are open ever day from dawn to dusk at the following PRLC preserves: Armstrong, Bye, Carolin’s Grove, Clark, Halle Ravine, Richards, and Russell. Please leash dogs for safety and to protect wildlife. For questions on our dog policy please email us at email@example.com.
