Celebrating 10 Years!

Celebrating 10 Years!



It’s been 10 years since Susan Bolitzer and a dedicated group of Saugerties residents were successful in preserving this unique 161-acre preserve, known to locals as ‘the old Schroeder Farm.’

Open to the public from dawn to dusk, the preserve is nature’s classroom, providing education and fun for Saugerties’ school kids as well as year-round guided nature walks, birding and paddling for all.

After serving for 10+ years as our fearless leader, Susan has stepped down to spend more time with her family.  We honor and celebrate Susan and all those who continue to give their time and energy stewarding the preserve.

We hope you can join us at Annarella Ristorante.  Cost for dinner is $30.00.  Ticket price includes salad, choice of entree, soft drinks, tax and gratuity.  Cash bar.

You can also send a check, payable to ECC, with your dinner choices (see below) to:  Virginia Luppino  3 Treis Terrace, Saugerties, NY  12477
