This walk will be paired with a meal at Nutts on the Canal, Lambertville. Eat there any time between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m.; say “D&R Greenway”, and the restaurant will donate 10% of your tab to the Land Trust’s preservation and stewardship mission. It is not necessary to participate in walk to support D&R Greenway with McNutts meal at any time that day. CEO/President Linda Mead and select D&R Greenway Staff and volunteers will be eating at McNutts immediately after guided walk. Public encouraged to join them. While walk is free, meal is at one’s own cost.
D&R Greenway’s President and CEO, Linda J. Mead, advises, “Come out and meet our new Assistant Director of Land Stewardship, Cindy Taylor. She and our new Director of Land Stewardship, Tina Nortas, have been busy, despite the weather of this challenging spring, preparing trails on our preserves for all of you. Deb Brockway, long-time trail-maintenance Volunteer, will be honored at this event. Our Trail-to-Table events are designed to convey key experiences of nature and of fellowship. For this series, it is new and exciting that renowned regional restaurants are cooperating specifically with our mission to save New Jersey Land.”
Those who work behind-the-scenes on this project of nature and gastronomy are doing so “to encourage people get to know these natural treasures which are right in our own community, alongside like-minded participants of all ages,” asserts the catalytic Nancy Faherty, D&R Greenway Donor Relations, Education & Outreach.
