MLK Day of Service in the Mapleton Preserve

Friends of Princeton Nursery Lands and Kingston Greenways Association invite you to join them on Monday, January 19, 2015, for a cleanup in the Mapleton Preserve on the National Day of Service honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. From noon to 3 pm volunteers will be clearing small trees, brush, vines and trash in the historic Mapleton Preserve. You are asked to bring any tools you may have, such as saws, clippers, loppers and rakes. Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather—work gloves, sturdy shoes, warm clothing and hats are recommended. For more information, visit the FPNL website or call 609-683-0483. Mapleton Preserve/D&R Canal State Park is located at 145 Mapleton Road in Kingston. (If using a GPS, use 145 Mapleton Road, Princeton 08540 as the address.)

Over 120 people turned out on January 1 for FPNL's first event of the new year—the First Day Hike through the Mapleton Preserve. Here are some photos from that well-attended event.
