FLPG is 25 this year!
February 5, 2022
Dear members - current, past and future!
We think it’s a pretty big deal to reach a 25th anniversary, so we’re very pleased to announce that’s where Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt finds itself in 2022. In celebration of this special milestone, we’ve been planning a robust calendar of activities to highlight the anniversary.
The annual calendar (click here) shows our regular monthly hikes and meetings plus the new activities and programs organized to mark this exciting year: an evening tour of Hans Van de Bovenkamp’s Sagaponack Sculpture Field, a National Trail’s Day smartphone contest, a Humanities New York “Place and Story” reading program, a sunrise hike with coffee and muffins, a Dragonfly Day gathering in Vineyard Field, a visit to Edwina von Gal’s Marshouse, a 2/3 for the Birds garden in East Hampton, and the new A Seed Is Sleepy StoryWalk installation for children at Mashashimuet Park.
Now is the perfect time to join, rejoin, or renew your
membership to help keep FLPG hard at work on
behalf of the amazing Long Pond Greenbelt.
With your support we will carry forward the grasslands restoration at Vineyard Field, remove invasive Japanese knotweed across the street at Slade Pond, monitor the Round Pond coastal plain pondshore restoration, agitate for no cell tower in the Greenbelt, work with the police to squash illegal ATV abuse, test for water quality of Greenbelt ponds, work with the Peconic Land Trust and Cornell Cooperative on the Poxabogue Field project, track the PSEG underground cable plan and, as ever, urge the Community Preservation Fund to preserve more acres in the precious Long Pond Greenbelt.
There’s so much to do! Your support makes it possible.
Friends, your membership is critical to the success of Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt. We look forward to seeing you in 2022.
Thank you for joining and best wishes,
