On Sunday, June 13, Friends had its annual member meeting. This year it took place at the Slingerland Pavilion at the Mohonk Preserve. The main topic was the acquisition of the 70 acre parcel known as The Shawangunk Conglomerate located adjacent to the northern portion of the Preserve.
Afterwards we hiked down into the parcel, giving our members a first hand look at the spectacular boulders and other beautiful features of this magnificent tract. FOS Members will get a full recap of the meeting/fundraiser and hike in the current (summer) issue of the Shawangunk Watch coming soon to their mailbox. If you are not already a member of Friends of the Shawangunks, click Donate, and join! BTW, we are still fundraising for the purchase of this parcel! Please help make this land ‘purchase possible. In the meanwhile, here are some pictures of the fun day we had on our Shawangunk ridge! (Photos by Renee Zernitsky, Ted Sendler and John Hayes)
