PLEASE READ UPDATED COVID HEALTH & SAFETY POLICY PRIOR TO PURCHASING TICKETS

 Updated Event COVID Health & Safety Policy (as of 9/1/21)

The health and safety of Natural Lands’ guests, staff, volunteers, vendors, and artists remains our top priority. Due to the nature of this event, all guests 12 years of age or older will be required to show proof of full COVID vaccination or negative COVID test for entry into Natural Lands’ Beats & Brews event. “Full COVID vaccination” means that a guest has received their final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to the event (Saturday, September 18 or before). Negative COVID test must be within three days of the event (Wednesday, September 29 or later).

Proof of full vaccination or negative test is MANDATORY and will be checked at the gate. Accepted forms include a physical vaccine card or digital photo of your vaccine card on your cell phone with your name on it and vaccination date(s), or a copy of negative COVID test results.

For anyone who has purchased a ticket prior to September 1 and will not be able to furnish proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test at the event, a refund will be offered. Please email brennix@natlands.org. For anyone purchasing a ticket on or after September 1, refunds will not be offered for inability to provide proof of vaccination or negative test.

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.

  • Gates open at 5:00 pm.
  • Free field parking available 
  • Bring a lawn chair or blanket.
  • No outside alcohol, food, or drink, please.
  • Please leave your four-legged friends at home.
