October

Children’s Storybook Trail at Lillibridge

Beginning Friday, October 28th through Wednesday, November 30th.     

In America, nothing cries out “Autumn is Here!” louder than the pumpkin!  This gorgeous gourd acts as an ambassador to both of our beloved fall holidays, Halloween and Thanksgiving.  To share in the celebration of our great friend the pumpkin, visit us at the Lillibridge Property for a new storybook adventure along our Storybook Reading Trail.  Read the children’s book It’s A Pumpkin! on the Interpretive Trail ( Griffin’s Way– an easy, .36 mi round trip trail) as you walk through our old growth forest.  The storybook pages are held in place by our gentle giants as you pass by.  The book will be available beginning Friday, October 28th through Wednesday, November 30th.  The Lillibridge Property is located at 1974 Lillibridge Road, Portville, NY.  We would love for you to share pictures and let us know how you enjoyed your visit by e-mailing naturalist@pfeiffernaturecenter.org  Enjoy the beautiful outdoors!

November

Forest Bathing-Moving Meditation at Lillibridge

Sunday, November 6th  Program Start Time: 10 am Program Length: 1 hour

Join us for a meditative walk through the fallen leaves as we find reflection and inquiry among the trees. Mirroring a season that focuses on letting go, we too will set intentions to release what we no longer need as we prepare to winter. Forest bathing is a slow calming wander, practiced for centuries but coined a term in Japan in the 80s. This session is led by Jessie Lampack Slattery, local yoga instructor and outdoor enthusiast. We will breathe and enjoy the many physical, emotional, mental, and energetic benefits of a saunter through the woods, this is a whole-body experience. All ages are invited if they can maintain our quiet atmosphere, all we ask is you please prepare for cold temperatures and show up with an open mind. We hope to see you there!  Cost is $5 per person and can be paid at the time of the program.  Pre-registration is not required.  In the event of extreme weather, this program will be canceled.  If the weather appears questionable, look for a cancellation notice on the front of our website home page. This walk will be held at the Lillibridge property- 1974 Lillibridge road, Portville. Pfeiffer Nature Center is supported by United Way Funding.
