Hello Bethlehem and Conservation-minded Friends!

In case you haven’t heard about it already, I wanted to let you know about an event going on this weekend on Sand Island. Join us for “Gardening for Wildlife” at the Sand Island Native Plant Preserve (SINPP) along Delaware and Lehigh canal trail (just due east of where the Monocacy enters the Lehigh River, immediately after you cross the walking bridge) on Saturday May 7th, 2-6pm.

Learn how to certify your green space as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat with the National Wildlife Federation! Guided Plant tours (2 & 5 pm); Live music by Gamelan Mekar Sari (2- 4 pm); Ribbon cutting by Mayor Callahan to dedicate Sand Island status as a National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat (4pm); Children’s activities (ongoing): make pinecone bird feeders & become nature detectives.

Hope to see you there!
