LWV.Eco (League of Women Voters) / Eagle Rock Conservancy Hike

August 13 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Free

LWV.Eco / Eagle Rock Conservancy Hike.

As the next event of its “We Love Eagle Rock Reservation” program, on Saturday, August 13, 2022 [9:00 am]   LWV.Eco will join with the Eagle Rock Conservancy for a 4 to 5 mile hike, at a moderate pace, covering some two to three hours. We’ll learn about the history of the Reservation, its current challenges, and the way the Eagle Rock Conservancy and LWV.Eco are addressing those challenges.

Eagle Rock is an outstanding local resource; and its future as a place for exercise, relaxation, and an appreciation of the out-of-doors is a local asset to shared and prized. While hiking we will also assess needs for removal of invasive plant-life, augmenting the development and growth of local vegetation, making the Reservation’s eco-structure more sound.

Meet up on 8/13/2022 @ 9:00a.m. @ the 9/11 Memorial in Eagle Rock with our experienced trailsman, Ron Pate. In 2002, Ron was named Tail Keeper of the Year in Essex County. He was a founding member of the Eagle Rock Conservancy; is active in New Jersey Sierra Club; and serves on the Board od Directors of the Montclair Area League of Women Voters, and its LWV.Eco Environmental committee. He literally knows each and every corner of the Reservation – and is fully conversant on what the Reservation has to offer, and what it needs in order to remain a place we all can enjoy and be proud of.
