Gathering at the River Showcases our Howland Preserve

Posted on: August 13, 2014

The Friends of our Howland Preserve held an inaugural Gathering at the River fundraiser Aug. 9 at the property.

With a dual goal of raising funds for and awareness of the preserve, the community event featured kayaking with Endless Mountains Outfitters, live music by Don Shappelle and Barry Derninis, refreshments from a Fire and Ice food truck, children’s activities with the Endless Mountains Nature Center, hiking tours, a jewelry class, various craft vendors and information tables, outdoor games and more.

Did you know that our 669 acre Howland Preserve is located adjacent to the 300 acre Camp Lackawanna property on the Vosburg Neck in Tunkhannock and that the camp property is protected by NBLT with a conservation easement! Together these two prperties protect nearly 1000 acres on the neck.
