The Merwin Preserve is open!

8/12/2020  Thanks for your patience as we cleared downed trees after a recent storm.  The work is not done, though, and we need your help! We are holding a volunteer workday next Wednesday, August 19th from 8-11am to clean the leftover debris from Merwin's trails. With a strong turnout, we'll make quick work of it. Bring a rake, a friend, and help keep Merwin the gem that it is. Sign up here:  https://bit.ly/MerwinCleanup
