Enjoy this video by Sandy Funtal taken at the Massie Cliffside Preserve. You never know what you might discover on a winter walk in an island preserve! Photos below by Sandy and by Susan Ferguson-thanks for sharing

Enjoy the holiday season by taking a walk at one of our island preserves-Massie Cliffside Preserve shown here.

If you have extra time and want to enjoy the warm weather, walk Coopers Woods and pick up the cans, bottles and garbage there. We are working to purchase the area hopefully in early 2020-one of our grantors would like us to remove debris from the woods. Send us a photo of your clean up efforts at or post on our Facebook.
