Crow’s Nest events

October 1, 2013

The Pancakes and Panoramas members’ event at Crow’s Nest last weekend was good fun. Food always seems to taste better outdoors, and when seated with good company. We took a hayride from the visitor center through the valley to the edge of the Deep Woods on Fox Hill.

We also have a bunch of upcoming events at Crow’s Nest:

This Saturday our Environmental Educator Molly Smyrl will hold the first of a series of monthly casual preserve hikes, Wild Wanders. The hike will meet at the visitor center barn at 201 Piersol Road at 8:30 on Saturday to see what there is to see—blooms, fall color, critters, etc. (see more details at the Crow’s Nest Facebook Page).

Please note that the contra dance that we used to hold at Crow’s Nest in June and October is now only being held here at the Crow’s Nest barn in June. The October dance will be held at the Birdsboro Community Center, the new home for the Elverson (now Birdsboro) Dance.

On Sunday, October 13 volunteer Megan McNamara will be leading a Fall Color Hike at Crow’s Nest from 3:00 – 6:00 pm.

Our Force of Nature volunteer training session for the class of 2014 kicks off on October 19 at Crow’s Nest, with a program about managing invasive plants. You need to be enrolled in the series of programs to attend; see the link above for details.

There will be a Moon Howl program at the full moon on October 19 (not to be confused with the Moon Observation event at our ChesLen Preserve the week before). Check out the Natural Lands Trust events calendar on our website for more details. The event at Crow’s Nest includes a bring-your-own potluck dessert to share after the night hike and moon watch.

The Wild Wanders, Fall Color Hike, and Moon Howl are free and open to the public. The Force of Nature program is open to enrollees in the Natural Lands Trust volunteer program. Check the links above for more details. Please pre-register for the Crow’s Nest Fall Color Hike and Moon Howl; for the Crow’s Nest Wild Wanders no registration is necessary.
