Harsimus Branch Tours Sunday, July 21, 2019

To Those Who Requested a Reservation for Our Tours Sunday:

If you haven't received an email confirming your reservation, you do not have a place on the tour.  We had an overwhelming response and the tours were rapidly filled.

Cautions: If you received an email confirming your reservation, it remains confirmed unless there are thunderstorms, in which case the tours will be cancelled, Otherwise, we will have the tours but please consider that the National Weather Service has issued advisories for excessive heat and air quality.   We urge you, especially if elderly, were planning to bring young children, or have health issues, to stay home and keep cool.  If you do decide to participate, however, please bring water and wear light clothing and sturdy shoes.

Thank you for your interest in the tour and in our project!
