LEWISBORO, N.Y. – A gathering to celebrate the progress made at Leon Levy Preserve will be held Saturday starting at 10 a.m. in the Leon Levy preserve parking lot in Lewisboro.
All are welcome to join the celebration. Starting at 10 a.m., Greg Monteleone, chairman of Lewisboro’s open space and preserves committee, will unveil a plaque, which reads, “Lewisboro thanks the Jerome Levy Foundation for its lead gift to create this Preserve. Major valuable contributions were also made by the Dextra Baldwin McGonagle Foundation, the Westchester Land Trust and the Lewisboro Land Trust together with the volunteers who give many hours of their time to clear and maintain the trails.”
The unveiling of the plaque will be followed by a brief talk by Pam Pooley, who designed the native plant garden on the east side of the parking lot.
To complete the celebration, the group will be invited on a short hike to explore the new trails, led by Anne-Marie Nordgren.
The parking lot is on Smith Ridge Road (Route 123), just south of where it joins Route 35.
