Bats and Night Things Walk

Lone Pine Marsh (Braham Tract)
Sep 16, 7pm
Bats are an incredibly important and threatened part of the ecosystem, yet are seldom seen because of their nocturnal habitats. Join guest speaker, Chris Ketola, who will show off some impressive technology that will help reveal the bat life overhead. Both resident species such as Big and Little Brown Bat, as well as migrants like Silver-haired Bat are possible.
Dress for the weather remembering it will get cooler as night comes; waterproof footwear is recommended as there may be a few muddy spots on the trail, as well as dew forming on the grass at dusk.

Introducing Lone Pine Land Trust

On June 11, the board of directors and members of Lone Pine Marsh Sanctuary met at the Braham tract for a walk of the property (and introduction to new trails) followed by lunch, a special meeting, and the annual general meeting.

At the Special Meeting, new by-laws were passed (with amendments) and the name was officially changed to Lone Pine Land Trust. Since the addition of the Wilkinson, Kennedy, and Munn tracts to the original marsh (Braham tract), our land ownership in the watershed of Cold and Marsh Creeks has increased to a total of 371 acres. The addition of “Land Trust” to our name immediately tells people what our organization is about. To simplify the name, we dropped “Marsh Sanctuary” from the title; we will continue to focus on acquiring wetlands and lands adjacent to the creeks and be a sanctuary to the indigenous organisms of the area.
