Binky Lee Preserve | Sat, September 09, 2017, 6:00pm - 9:30pm
THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Join us for a late-summer evening filled with live music, craft beer, and good friends in support for the Campaign for Bryn Coed Farms and Binky Lee Preserve!
Relax and enjoy MiZ & Friends featuring Mike Mizwinski, who will jam through the evening in celebration of 50 years of the Grateful Dead.
Thanks to our friends at Victory Brewing Company, all ticket-holders receive two free beers. Additional beer will be available for purchase, along with light dinner fare from Victory’s iconic Brew Pub on Wheels (cash-only).
Your Beats and Brews ticket purchase is an important part of community fundraising to preserve nearby Bryn Coed Farms, Natural Lands’ newest property, as well as restoration projects and improved amenities at Binky Lee.
We have succeeded in saving Bryn Coed from development and have agreements of sale on 35% of the conservation lots available, BUT we still are working to raise the last $540,000 necessary to meet a $5 million Campaign for Bryn Coed Farms goal that will ensure the creation of a new 500-acre nature preserve. (A preserve that will be open to the public, with nearly 10 miles of trails, free of charge, 365 days a year.)
Let’s end this campaign the way we began it: Friend by friend, neighbor by neighbor, and gift by gift.
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.
Registrants receive two complimentary beers with their tickets. Additional beer and food will be available on-site for purchase from Victory Brewing Company. Please note: Victory food and beer purchases are cash-only.
Bring your own lawn chairs or blanket.
Please, NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR ALCOHOL. Leave your four-legged friends at home.
