 Tracking with Callie Velmachos
Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt is pleased to announce that the 2017 season of the Sundays at Two series will conclude on Sunday, November 19th, at 2:00 p.m. with a Tracking Program with Callie Velmachos.

Join Callie Velmachos for a short, between 1 and 2 hours, slow walk in the woods.  Discover that a tracking walk is often about much more than tracks.  This outing is designed for adults. Interested children are welcome if accompanied by an adult. If weather is too forbidding, there will be a talk, plaster casts, and a reference book review at the Long Pond Greenbelt Nature Center.  Callie is certified in reading track and sign by Cybertracker International.  She has been tracking in the Long Pond Greenbelt for 30 years.

The Long Pond Greenbelt Nature Center is located at 1061 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike, just north of Scuttle Hole Road (look for the Open flag and follow the driveway to the end).  All Sundays at Two events are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Tuesday, November 28 – Support FLPG in #Giving Tuesday.

Tuesday, November 28 – Support FLPG in #Giving Tuesday.  This year, on Tuesday, November 29th, Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.  Last year, millions of people in 98 countries came together to give back and support causes they believe in.  Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.

We hope you consider donating to our Giving Tuesday campaign by joining Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt as a new member, renewing your membership, volunteering, and/or donating to one of our special projects.  Our aim during this campaign is to reach our goal of 370 members for 2017 – OUR 20th YEAR! – and kick off our 2018 membership campaign (remember any new memberships this month count for 2017 & 2018).

In addition to memberships, we would like to start rebuilding our Vineyard Field grassland restoration fund.  We have come to the end of our 10 year Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP) Grant from the United Stated Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, however, the battle against the invasive autumn olive, Japanese knotweed and mile-a-minute weed is far from over in Vineyard Field.  Continual maintenance and additional work sessions are needed to keep these invasives in check.  Your support on #GivingTuesday is important to help us continue work in the field and throughout the Long Pond Greenbelt.

 

We thank you all for your continued support over the years in helping us steward the area that has become so dear to all of us, the Long Pond Greenbelt.
