Concert for the Environment
For ages 10 and up

Featuring the band: Gathering Time Voted best band runner-up (and top folk band) in the 2011 Long Island Press readers' poll, Gathering Time is like a high-energy Peter, Paul & Mary or a co-ed Crosby, Stills & Nash, with various parts of The Byrds, Joni Mitchell, the Eagles and America mixed in; a head-turning folk-rock harmony trio described recently as "getting a whole beehive-full of buzz" on the northeast regional folk scene. No less an authority than WFUV's John Platt has written that they are "among the finest performers in the New York metropolitan area, whatever the size of the venue, from a house concert to an outdoor festival," with "harmonies that can charm the birds out of the trees, strong original songs, and a savvy repertoire of cover songs, ranging from traditional folk to classic rock. They appeal to audiences of all ages."

APEC Hiking Club and Trail Crew

Our Hiking Club is for adults, and we will explore local areas suited for easy to moderate hikes. We will also contribute to the muscle required to develop a Trail Crew to benefit the Environmental Center. APEC membership is required, and we will also be members of the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference (requiring additional dues). The Club covers these extra costs by chipping in $2 per monthly outing that you attend. The Conference will guide us in how we develop the trail crew. We intend to whistle while we work, so come out for the fun.

We will have a monthly informational meeting to discuss plans for upcoming hikes, monthly outings and other opportunities, in addition to the regular weekly hikes planned by the group (weather and season permitting). Plan to join us to see what we are up to on the dates listed below! APEC Hikers takes advantage of the fine weather and longer days by scheduling weekly hikes for its membership.
