Beats & Brews

Binky Lee Preserve | Sat, September 08, 2018, 6:00pm - 9:00pm

Online Pre-registration is closed. Purchase tickets ON-SITE, starting at 6:00 PM on September 8. Cash preferred.

Join conservation-loving friends at Beats & Brews, Natural Lands’ annual end-of-summer bash in support of our Binky Lee and Bryn Coed Preserves – both in Chester Springs.

 

MiZ Quartet, whose lead singer Michael Mizwinski was named acoustic artist of the year two years in a row, will play “an eclectic collection of rock-roots-blazing, bluegrass, and soulful acoustic ballads.”

 

All ticket-holders receive two free beers. Additional beer will be available for purchase, as will delicious food truck fare, but you are welcome to pack your own picnic provisions as well.

 

Binky Lee Preserve is open to the public, free-of-charge, 365 days a year. Our new Bryn Coed Preserve, scheduled to open in late-Fall 2018, will operate similarly. 100% of Beats & Brews net proceeds will benefit both properties’ priorities for stewarding natural resources and connecting people to nature. Thank you for your support!

 

Event Attendees: You are welcome to bring your own lawn chair, blanket, and picnic, but please, NO DOGS. Event is for adults age 21 and over. Gates open at 6:00 pm and the music begins at 6:30 pm.

September 8, 2018
6:00pm - 9:00pm

Binky Lee Preserve is an expanse of former agricultural land that is being converted back to natural woodlands and meadows. Returning the land to nature actually requires a great deal of care and skill. For more than two decades, we’ve employed a range of restoration techniques to improve these habitats so plants and wildlife can thrive, and for people to enjoy.

More than 10,000 native trees have been planted on the preserve—a process known as afforestation—in an effort to expand the wooded areas. In other sections of the preserve, by not mowing we allow them to return to woodlands on their own. While it won’t happen overnight—and we’ll need to try to mitigate the impact of deer and invasive plants—these trees will eventually and provide critical forest habitat for wildlife.
