Suitable for Ages 6-10, Tweens, Teens and Adults
Come and celebrate Earth Day at the Albany Pine Bush Preserve. We’ll take our time, stopping to acknowledge and celebrate all the good things we love about our little slice of the world: the sand beneath our feet, the special flora & fauna surrounding us, and whatever weather Earth Day 2022 brings! We plan to walk 1.7 miles.

This program will meet at the wooden and metal kiosk at the Blueberry Hill East Trailhead (#4).
