There were carriage rides, food, music, a moonbounce for the kids, face painting, guided hikes of the preserve, a bird walk with Jim McVoy, hayrides, canoeing on the Brandywine, a car & antique tractor show, an art show, and exhibits by outdoor groups. It was too windy to run the tethered balloon rides for long.
I drove the haywagon shuttle for the event, alternating hours with Erich, who also was leading the hike and providing logistical support to the organizers. This is the view over my shoulder on the hayride.
We intend Natural Lands Trust preserves to be an integral part of the communities they're located in, and this event demonstrates one way that we can be that.
