In addition to Natural Lands Trust's events at our preserves (see the schedule here), there are a number of events of cultural and conservation interest in our region this month.
This weekend is the Hay Creek Festival at Joanna Furnace. This popular event from Friday to Sunday includes early American crafts, foods, technology, a tractor show and antique car show, archeological and restoration work at the historic furnace, music and entertainment.
Yellow Springs Farm is having their open house and native plant sale this weekend as well.
If you're interested in what open space and recreation will look like around here in years to come, on Septmber 24, 7:00 to 8:30 pm there will be a public meeting at Owen J. Roberts High School to update the community for the Northern Federation of Chester County Municipalities regional parks, recreation and open space plan.
And at the end of the month the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Farming will be holding their 3rd annual Chester County Bike Fresh Bike Local event. It has 75, 50 and 25 mile courses that highlight the farms that they pass. Food along the route is donated by local farmers and prepared by local chefs.
