Sunday, Oct. 2, 10:30 a.m.: Phone Apps and Nature Hike

Join Hunterdon Land Trust for a guided hike, and learn how different phone apps can help you identify and document the natural world around you!

Our Stewardship Program Manager, Emily Dunn, will introduce participants to eBird, iNaturalist, and Merlin Bird ID – popular apps for recording observations of birds, plants, insects, and other wildlife. No prior experience, or identification skills, required! We will also discuss the value of these apps for Hunterdon Land Trust’s stewardship efforts.

Meet in the Dvoor Farm Wagon House. It’s free, but space is limited – RSVP to emily@hunterdonlandtrust.org or call 908-237-4582. 

 

Sunday, Oct, 16, 11 a.m.: The Story of Washington’s Crossing and Its Parks

Hunterdon Land Trust will welcome authors Patricia Millen and Robert Sands Jr. to discuss their new book Washington Crossing during our Farmers’ Market.

The illustrated lecture on Washington Crossing will explore the history of the site of General George Washington’s crossing of the Delaware River with his Continental Army in 1776 to the Battle of Trenton– through the creation of both parks that mark its place in memorial. (Side note: At the time when Washington crossed, Hunterdon County’s southern border stretched down to the Assunpink Creek in Trenton.)

The talk will detail the history chronologically and bring the story of both the New Jersey and Pennsylvania parks and the people who helped create them up to the present day, where an annual reenactment of the crossing continues every year.

The program is free, and will be held in our wagon house. Space is limited so we are encouraging everyone to register in advance by emailing dave@hunterdonlandtrust.org or calling 908-237-4582.
