Saturday, April 22, 9:00am - 11:00am - Kick off Roadside Cleanup Week.  Come to the library to pick up your bags, gloves and pickers and have a cup of coffee and donuts on us!  A supply of bags will be at the library starting April 1 for any early birds!

Sunday, April 23, 3:00pm at the Library - Annual Meeting.  TREES, GLORIOUS TREES - how to save our most magnificent assets.  Expert Richard Buckley from Rutgers will be on hand to help us identify those nasty pests and diseases that are attacking our beautiful, mature trees.  There will be a field trip along the Durand Trail after his presentation for a hands-on identification and discussion.  This event is co-sponsored by the North Salem Conservation Advisory Council.  There will be a brief annual meeting before the start of the program.

Saturday, April 29, 10:00am - 2:00pm - Black Gold Day.  Best composted cow manure for your gardens.  For just a nominal $5 per bucket suggested donation, we will shovel and lift for you.  This event is made possible by the generosity of Peter Kamenstein of Three Ponds Farm.  Just follow our signs on April 29 to the farm on Finch Road.

E-Waste day was so successful we may do it again this fall.  Stay tuned for further details.  If you are a member, you will receive email reminders.  Please consider becoming a member.


New "Entering North Salem" signs have been installed.  We'll never understand what motivates them, but vandals damaged and totally destroyed four of our gateway signs last year.  All totaled, six of eight signs were down!  We have not been defeated, however. We ordered new and slightly improved signs this spring and they are up!
