The Nature Conservancy & DLC Thompson Pond Preserve Opening Day

The Nature Conservancy and Dutchess Land Conservancy’s Thompson Pond Preserve Opening Day

SATURDAY, MAY 21, 2022 at 9:00 AM

Thompson Pond

Have you ever wanted to learn more about how trails are developed, how they are maintained, and why proper trail development can support ecosystem function while connecting us with nature? Join The Nature Conservancy and Dutchess Land Conservancy for a preserve opening and maintenance day, Saturday May 21, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm at the Thompson Pond Preserve in Pine Plains, NY. As we work, we will learn about the importance of proper recreation management, especially around wetlands as the pond is the headwaters of Wappinger Creek. Join us for a morning of volunteer work, then enjoy the beautiful hiking, biking, paddling, restaurants, breweries, and wineries Dutchess County has to offer. There will be activities for all ages, from raking and brushing the trail to flagging a brand new trail!

What to bring:
· Snacks/lunch
· Water
· Clothing appropriate to the weather
· Waterproof footwear if possible
· Bug spray

Where to meet:
· Lake Rd. Pine Plains, NY 12567

Outdoor things to do in the area (to name just a few):
Harlem Valley Rail Trail
Stissing Mountain Trail
Dover Stone Church Trail
