Friends gather to celebrate the Fall Luncheon on the Grounds in a remote research field

We are very grateful to supporters who made the 5th Fall Luncheon on the Grounds on September 20, 2015, a resounding success.

On a spectacular fall day, friends of the Cary Institute gathered together to enjoy good food and good company in a little-known field tucked away on the Institute's 2,000-acre campus. During lunch, freshwater ecologist Dave Strayer described his work partnering with colleagues and agencies to better protect the Hudson River's shoreline habitats. Guests were treated to his new handbook Managing Shore Zones for Ecological Benefits, which provides insight into practical ways of protecting shore zones—anywhere water meets land to increase the benefits of these important ecosystems. Meanwhile, a dozen intrepid EcoKids explored the Fern Glen and Wappinger Creek, sharing fascinating facts about plants and animals they encountered along the way.

Thanks again to all who help support and celebrate the Cary Institute's world class research and education programs.
