Play with Leaves
Binky Lee Preserve | Sun, October 29, 2017, 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Colorful fall leaves lend inspiration for lots of creative fun! Natural Lands has planted thousands of trees and shrubs at Binky Lee Preserve, providing a stunning landscape, healthy habitat, and a chance for us to play in leaves of all shapes, sizes, and colors!
Imaginations run wild while Natural Lands staff and volunteers encourage kids to make cool crafts with nature’s gifts. Join us to play, create, and explore the autumn delights of this beautiful preserve.
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.
