Earth Day Celebration of Wildflowers @ Otto and Magdalene Ackermann Nature Preserve
Apr 22 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm


Come join us! For an Earth Day celebration of wildflowers along the rich wooded slopes of Otto and Magdalene Ackermann Nature Preserve. The first part of the walk is an easy stroll along Old Dirt Road Trail. Those who wish to continue on a moderate walk can join us down the Wedding Trail for waterfalls and trilliums. Along the floodplain of Blue Dell Run, see more flowers, and learn about recent tree and shrub plantings.
We will practice social distancing. See https://www.cdc.gov/…/daily-life-coping/visitors.html for ways to enjoy the outdoors. (Stay home if you do not feel well. Stay at least 6 feet away from people you don’t live with. Wear a mask.)

Ackermann Preserve Spring Work Day! @ Otto and Magdalene Ackermann Nature Preserve
May 27 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Meet at 6 p.m. at the Ackermann Preserve.

We will:

•   maintain existing trails, create new trail tread and perform various trail tasks

•   maintain tubes and mats of recently planted trees

•   tackle newly sprouted knotweed with a shovel blade (what better way to get rid of weekday frustrations!)

All are welcome, but children should be accompanied by an adult.

Don’t worry if trail building is new to you; instruction will be provided!

The land trust can supply useful trail and work tools (Pulaski, mattocks, shovels, clippers and loppers), but if desired and able, bring your own rake, shovel, clippers or loppers.

Please bring your own work gloves. And wear shoes that can get muddy or wet.

We will meet rain or shine.  Let us know [Loree at (724) 518-6022, loreespeedy@gmail.com] if you can attend, or if you have any questions.

If you arrive after 6 p.m., look for a note on the kiosk for our destination.
