Join us in celebrating our newest and long-awaited land conservation project - Auzins Nature Sanctuary!
This nature reserve was generously donated by Karen & Eric Auzins and protects 21 ha (51 acres) of native woodlands in the Dingman Creek valley. The creek meanders through a broad wooded floodplain dotted with shallow ponds and wet meadows of Skunk Cabbage and Marsh Marigold. Sycamores thrive in the lowlands, which are flanked by steep valley slopes covered by maples, oaks, cherry, and beech. Differing topography and moisture levels create a variety of habitats which, in turn, support a remarkable diversity of wildlife − amphibians, reptiles, mammals, birds, insects and more. In spring, wildflowers of many species bloom, and wet areas come alive with the sounds of frogs and toads. Overhead, resident and migrant birds, including warblers, add their songs to the chorus.
The Auzins Nature Sanctuary Celebration will include speeches, hikes, and refreshments. RSVPs are required.
This event is subject to COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the event. We will be monitoring the situation and may need to make changes. Any changes will be communicated by email to all participants.
