SARNOFF EXPLORATION       Feb. 3 and Feb. 17

During the winter months, every first and third Saturday, John Virgilio is leading hikes in the Sarnoff Pine Barrens.  John is an expert hike leader, who visits this intriguingly alien property in a way that enables the hiker to experience its fragile and wonderful ecology.

John is leading these hikes because he wants to get more people to appreciate the value of this DEC managed property.  He feels that a presence of people who care for this property will help protect it.  John is making these hikes open to both Southampton Trails Preservation Society and the Long Island Greenbelt Trail Conference.

I hope to see you on the Feb. 3 and Feb. 17 hikes,

--Ken Kindler
