Please join your fellow Sierrans and members of other groups on Sunday, June 12 for a picnic and discussion of the proposal to re-designate the Delaware Water Gap as a National Park and Preserve. See the attached flyer for details.
Cinda Waldbuesser of the National Parks Conservation Association, Erica Rosenberg of People United for Parks, and I will speak on the importance of national parks vs. other federal designations.
Bring your own picnic lunch starting at 1 PM. At 2 PM, we’ll start the talk and discussion. Bring your ideas. We’ll provide snacks and dessert.
For more information or to join the campaign on the Sierra Club Activist Network, visit:
Event will be held at the Turtle Beach facility at Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area (New Jersey side). Take 1-80 to Exit 1 in NJ. Follow Old Mine Road north for 7 miles to the Turtle Beach facility. Let the attendant know you are there for the Sierra Club event to get the facilities fee waived. We have a covered picnic area so event will take place even if light rain is predicted. Check the activist network page that morning if in doubt.
Please forward to anyone else you think might be interested. Children, family, and friends are welcome.
We could use a couple of volunteers to help set up. If you are interested, please let me know. Thanks.
