Join us for a celebration on the land with the Grand Opening of the Freshwater Farms Reserve Nature Trail! This scenic and pastoral property is for you and your family to enjoy, representing what the Land Trust works to protect - wild and working landscapes.
The gathering will include music by Thursday Night Bluegrass & Josephine Johnson; presentations on Cows and Coho & the Graham-Long Dairy Barn; and a community potluck with locally produced food & drinks.
The event will also include a plein air painting event with the following local landscape artists: Kathy O'Leary, Jody Bryan, Jane Cipra, Kimberly Culotta, Andrew Daniel, Paula Golightly, Michael Guerriero, Joy Hardin, Betsy Kendall, Claudia Lima, Maureen McGarry, Jim McVicker, Terry Oats, Paul Rickard, Jay Schock, Patty Sennott, Leo Stafsnes, and Amy Uyeki. Some art work produced on site will be on sale at gathering.
