Vine Day … Open Land Conservancy Could Use Your Help on Saturday!

Has this winter left you suffering from cabin fever and a need to get outside for some fresh air? There’s a perfect opportunity this Saturday, April 14 to help the community and celebrate the end of winter!

The Open Land Conservancy of Chester County will be holding its last Vine Day of the season on Saturday at George Lorimer Preserve, 9 AM – 12 Noon. Vines will be cut back so you will need to wear appropriate gloves and protective clothing. Volunteers are asked to bring tools if they have them — prunners, saws, clippers. But not to worry, the volunteers from Open Land Conservancy will have extra tools. Open Land Conservancy invites you to give back to your community by helping with spring property maintenance.

Lorimer Preserve is 88 acres of meadows, woods, ponds, stream, and extensive trail system are managed to provide a variety of habitats for wildlife in a beautiful rural setting.

Volunteering for the Open Land Conservancy is a great way to make a difference for the lands and communities of this region while having fun and meeting new people!

Directions: head north on North Valley Road across Valley Creek, to entrance and parking lot on right. For further information on Vine Day and Open Land Conservancy, click here. Any questions, contact Ray Clarke at 610-578-0358.

  1. It is becoming abundantly clear that teachers need to participate in the economy and NOT drain it. Many citizens are concerned about the impact of entitlements…and that is often code for welfare recipients. Well, we have a group of highly educated white collar professionals who have the summer off who are seriously draining our coffers.

    Future contracts with educator s need to be looked at! Given the extended life span and general demographics…..the gravy train for teachers has to be slowed down or we are all going to be pitching a tent. The tax base for real estate cannot sustain these very well educated annuitants.

    Who has the guts to take this issue head on?

  2. according to Keith Knauss as written in your piece above, only parental education and poverty are the factors that can predict student success. based on this, how can the teachers union say its about teachers salaries and benefits? I tend to agree with Mr. Knauss.
    and Valley forge lady too. ENOUGH!

  3. Ha Patty I was confused when I saw those comments as well, was trying to figure out what they had to do with cutting back vines!

    anyway, this sounds like it would have been fun, just saw this announcement of the open land conservancy vine day just now though!
