Music & Art in the Forest Open House

Join The Sustainability Project on Sunday, September, 30th from 11am - 3pm for its Annual "Music and Art in the Forest" Open House Celebration at the 33-acre Emerson Brook Forest Center, 57 Emerson Brook Drive, in Gilsum. This year’s event features tours of the center; a guided forest walk on McIntire Trail, named after a highschool student who defined the trail as a senior project; nature-inspired art exhibits, interactive art, live solar powered music, a tour of the Piedmont-Fleischmann off-grid homestead, light refreshments and the solar raffle drawing. Bring a picnic lunch and be part of the magic! While there is no admission fee, donations to support The Sustainability Project’s endeavors are gratefully accepted. The Sustainability Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit educational organization, promotes a love of nature, environmental stewardship, caring communities and ways of living that deepen our understanding of the interconnected web of life.

National Public Lands Day

To help prepare the Outdoor Center for the event, consider joining us as a volunteer in the Emerson Brook Forest on National Public Lands Day, Saturday, September 22nd anytime between 9 and 3. Volunteers have an opportunity to be part of a national effort to promote a shared stewardship of valuable community resources and improve lands for outdoor recreation. This year's work projects at the Center include: wheelchair-accessible trail building and maintenance, hiking trail maintenance, invasive plant removal, garden weeding & mulching, and site preparation for spring crop plantings.
