Somers Land Trust Thanks Volunteer Cutters

Thanks so much to the 25 community volunteers and scouts who cut invasive vines at Rhinoceros Creek on Sunday, February 16th! 

The trees will thrive thanks to your efforts... and hikers and birders will have lots of opportunities to enjoy this beautiful land in the future!

Throughout 2019, your land trust has worked as hard as ever to protect the important natural places that make Somers special.

​We are only able to keep up these efforts year after year due to the wonderful support of you, our donors and volunteers. We salute you with deep appreciation for the support that makes our work possible.

At any time in the coming year,  we hope you will consider making a donation.

The wonderful thing about supporting the Somers Land Trust is that everything you give goes right back into your own backyard – the community we all treasure.

​2019 Highlights

  • Protected Rhinoceros Creek Reservation forever through a conservation easement in partnership with the Westchester Land Trust

  • Pavilion at Rhinoceros Creek - completed and dedicated

  • New trails on southern Rhinoceros Creek parcel

  • Readied the Reynolds House at Angle Fly Preserve for the final stages of restoration; obtained funding for HVAC, sheetrock, and painting

  • Many new scout projects supervised at Angle Fly and more scheduled for Rhinoceros Creek

  • Outdoor programs for Somers families at Rhinoceros Creek through our ongoing partnership with the Rewilding School

  • Membership in the new Hudson-to-Housatonic (H2H) Regional Conservation Partnership as a full participating organization

  • Inauguration of the H2H Pollinator Pathways Program in Somers to create habitat for pollinating insects and provide opportunities for direct public action to protect Somers natural environment

These efforts were on top of our ongoing commitment to maintain the trails, Native Plant Garden and tree planting projects at Angle Fly Preserve; run the Wildlife Management Program — which we are expanding to Rhinoceros Creek; as well as do the bookkeeping, volunteer coordination, website maintenance, newsletter creation and all the other tasks a non-profit must perform to stay healthy.
