Saturday, November 4 – Full Frost Moon Hike. 7:00PM-8:00PM.

Saturday, November 4 – Full Frost Moon Hike. 7:00PM-8:00PM.  Co-sponsored by Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt & the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo).  The Frost Moon is also known as the Full Beaver Moon.  For Native Americans this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs.  Join us for this leisurely paced one-hour hike in Vineyard Field, the field behind the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo), and afterward, for some convivial conversation and refreshments in the moonshine.  Meet at the SoFo Museum parking lot, 377 Bridgehampton Turnpike, 200 yards north of the RR tracks. Leader: Dai Dayton, 631-745-0689.

Sunday, December 3 – Full Cold Moon Hike. 6:00PM-7:00PM.

Sunday, December 3 – Full Cold Moon Hike. 6:00PM-7:00PM.  Co-sponsored by Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt & the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo).  During this month the winter cold fastens its grip, and nights are at their longest and darkest. Sometimes this moon is also called the Long Night Moon as the winter nights lengthen and the moon spends more time above the horizon opposite a low sun. Join us for this leisurely paced one-hour hike in Vineyard Field, the field behind the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo), and afterward, for some convivial conversation and refreshments in the moonshine.  Meet at the SoFo Museum parking lot, 377 Bridgehampton Turnpike, 200 yards north of the RR tracks. Leader: Jean Dodds, 631-599-2391.

    Tuesday, November 29 – Support FLPG in #Giving Tuesday (ANNUAL APPEAL).

Tuesday, November 29 – Support FLPG in #Giving Tuesday (ANNUAL APPEAL).

Tuesday, November 29 – Support FLPG in #Giving Tuesday (Annual Appeal).  This year, on Tuesday, November 29th, Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.  Last year, more than 27,000 organizations in 68 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday.  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 350 members for 2016 (only 13 more members needed!) and kick off our 2017 membership campaign (remember any new memberships this month count for 2016 & 2017).

In addition to memberships, we would like to start rebuilding our Vineyard Field grassland restoration fund and volunteer pool.  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 land that has become so dear to all of us, the Long Pond Greenbelt.

Special FLPG Project for 2016

HELP SUPPORT A VERY SPECIAL PROJECT
_____________________________________________
We’ve mowed ’em, cut ’em, dug ’em, 
weed-wrenched ’em, and chipped ’em.

Now they’re gonna be munched!

          

With your help, Mozart the goat and his friends 

will eat ’em right up . . .

the invasive autumn olives in Vineyard Field, that is.

____________________
Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt is pleased to announce that Southampton Town has approved our plans for a pilot project to bring goats to the Vineyard Field Grassland Restoration where they will gnaw away at the ever-persistent invasive autumn olive regrowth. Town Council members not only endorsed this environmentally sensitive approach to controlling infestations of invasive plants, they offered their financial support by voting, unanimously, to contribute $3,500 to the project.
As gratified as we are by the town’s support, the reality is that their appropriation will cover only half of the cost of the six-month program, so we are asking for your help in making up the difference.
We are brimming with enthusiasm about using this natural method of removing non-native species at Vineyard Field — a first-of-its-kind project for the East End — and we hope you will share in this exciting new stage of the grassland restoration.
Please consider a gift at one of the levels shown below, though donations in any amount are greatly appreciated.  You may click here for a printable form to mail in with your check or here to donate using PayPal.
Nibbler . . . . $25
Muncher . . . $50
Chewer . . . . $75
Chomper . . $100
Masticator . $250
Pulverizer .  $500
Thank You Very Munch!
