Crow’s Nest: A little piece on Radio Times

October 5, 2014

By Daniel Barringer, Preserve Manager

There was a nice plug for the preserve on Friday’s NPR show, Radio Times. It’s a piece entitled, Autumn leaves and heirloom apples, and the first portion features an interview with Susan Charkes, author of Best Day Hikes near Philadelphia and John Brunner, Mid-Atlantic Recreation Planner for the Appalachian Mountain Club (the second part, with Rowan Jacobson, about unusual varieties of heirloom apples, is also quite good).

Susan and I co-led a hike at Crow’s Nest that focused on land stewardship a few weeks ago, and she has also co-edited with Dr. Ann Rhoads Natural Lands Trust’s Stewardship Handbook, now in an updated 2nd edition entitled Land for LifeCrow’s Nest does not appear in her first edition of Best Day Hikes… but she says it will be in the next.

She mentioned Crow’s Nest in the Radio Times piece, and John Brunner went on to mention a couple other Natural Lands Trust preserves as noteworthy places to visit: Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary near Easton, Pennsylvania, and our Glades Wildlife Refuge in Cumberland County, New Jersey.

We appreciate the kind words, and agree—hope to see you at the preserves this fall!
