Winter Solstice Walk

Instead of hunkering down and bemoaning the longest night of the year (also known as the winter solstice), celebrate it with a stroll through the Preserve with Education Coordinator Kelly Joslin. We'll celebrate the joys of winter with a walk on the Preserve's trails at a time when the sun is lowest in the sky and we experience the shortest days of the year. We'll conclude in the Visitor Center with hot drinks and cookies. »

Winter Lecture Series: The Green Amendment: Securing Our Right To A Healthy Environment

For decades, communities have relied on federal and state laws to ensure protection of a clean environment. And while achieving some important environmental protection successes, overall the health of our environment has continued to degrade from a growing number of sources. The truth is, our laws are designed to accommodate pollution as much as, perhaps even more than, to prevent it. As a result, people feel powerless when it comes to preserving the quality of their water, air, public parks and natural spaces. But there is a solution for achieving better, and much needed, protection of our environment: bypassing the laws and turning to the ultimate authority— our state and federal constitutions. This lecture will discuss and inspire a new way of thinking about, and pursuing, environmental protection from both policy and legal perspectives. Maya K. van Rossum is the long-time Delaware riverkeeper and leader for the Delaware Riverkeeper Network. Using advocacy, science and litigation, the DRN works throughout the four states of the Delaware River watershed (NY, NJ, PA & DE) and at the national level. Her book, “The Green Amendment, Securing Your Right to a Healthy Environment,” was the 2018 Living Now Evergreen Awards GOLD Winner in the nature conservation category. Walk-ins welcome as space allows. Punch Cards Purchase a Winter Lecture Series punch card, good for one admission to each of the eight lectures, and save 20%.
