D&R Greenway Walk Bonfire St. Michaels Farm Preserve Oct. 13
Oct 13, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$15 – $30
In celebration of its 30th Anniversary, D&R Greenway invites the public to their October Trails to Table event at Hopewell’s St. Michaels Farm Preserve. Come for an easy trail walk, followed by a bonfire and s’mores. The evening showcases the land trust’s newest TravelStorys app. The program activates smartphones at twenty points of historic and natural interest upon St. Michaels preserve trails. The tour was created in honor of the children who once lived on the property and is “designed to give children ways to find a home in nature.” With stories about geology, birds, wild mint, and the bridge named for former Hopewell leader David Knights, “The sounds of nature feed the soul, and provide a means of centering and peace.” This event honors D&R Greenway’s partnership with the Hopewell community to preserve over 400 acres of land.
The family-friendly walk and bonfire will take place Sunday, October 13, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Participants should wear closed shoes suitable for uneven terrain. Bring water and insect repellant. Guests enter off Hopewell’s Princeton Avenue; park near and gather at restored barn. Register by October 9:(firstname.lastname@example.org. www.drgreenway.org.) Cost for attendance is $30 per family or couple, or $15 per person. Proceeds support D&R Greenway’s New Jersey land preservation and stewardship mission.
