Bolton Landing, NY – The Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) is holding its Annual Meeting and Block Party at the Up Yonda Farm Environmental Education Center, August 20th from 11 am to 2 pm.

The public is invited to attend this family-friendly, free event, which includes live music by High Peaks Bluegrass, and games and activities for kids and adults. The Tres Mijas food truck will be on site for food for purchase.

Interactive booths include wildlife rehabilitator Nancy Kimball with her educational raptors, and NYS DEC with information about invasives and forestry. Up Yonda Farm’s facility has a large picnic pavilion and extensive grounds for exploring. Exhibits include a butterfly house, children’s nature museum, pond exploration, and hiking trails.

At 11:30 am the LGLC will hold its annual meeting outside the Up Yonda’s auditorium (in the case of rain the meeting will move indoors). Staff and Directors will present briefings on the LGLC’s past conservation efforts and plans for the year ahead, as well as stewardship, events and outreach, and our financial report for the 2022 fiscal year. During this portion of the event the LGLC will also present its Volunteer of the Year award.

A guided hike on Up Yonda’s trail to their fantastic Lake George overlook will begin at 1 pm.

Registrations are not required, and this is a rain-or-shine event (activities may be modified in case of rain). More information about the Annual Meeting and Block Party can be found at https://lglc.org/event/annual-meeting-block-party/.
