Big Flats Community Park
Knowledge Under the Pines: The Amazing Timber Rattlesnake
Presented by Chemung River Friends
September 20 from 7 – 8:30PM
Chemung River Friends is announcing a series of unique nature education programs featuring presentations held in the middle of shady and tall stand of pine trees in Big Flats, NY.
Called Knowledge Under the Pines, the outdoor classroom provides enough room for people to stay socially distanced in lawn chairs on a thick carpet of fragrant pine needles. The stand of Eastern Pines grows in the eastern section of the Big Flats Community Park near the intersection of State Route 352 and Winters Road.
These programs will be held throughout the Spring and Summer on select Monday evenings from 7-8:30PM. Topics will include local wildlife, plants, rivers, and nature; and will be presented by our co-founder, former executive director, and current volunteer: Jim Pfiffer! A reduced event fee of $10 for members and $20 for non-members is made possible by the Anderson Foundation and will help River Friends continue its environmental education programs. DON’T FORGET TO BRING YOUR OUR LAWN CHAIRS!
Knowledge Under the Pines is a continuation of the pre-pandemic River Friends public presentations held at the Finger Lakes House in Elmira.
