The Orange County Citizens Foundation and the The Orange County Land Trust invite you and your family to a seasonal experience in nature. “Being in Nature” is a 90-minute guided exploration aimed at fostering an appreciation for the changing seasons as they occur at the Seligmann Farmstead, a 55 acre former dairy farm in Sugar Loaf with several interesting ecological features. Come explore the changing aspects of trees, water, soil, geology and animal life from season to season through the uplands, wetlands and forests of this historic property.
The Orange County Citizens Foundation is a membership-based non-governmental organization that improves quality of life for Orange County residents through public policy and advocacy in land use and transportation planning, water conservation, waste management, cultural affairs, education, agriculture, recreation, and healthcare. The Citizens Foundation is housed on 50 acres of bucolic farmland, formally the home of Surrealist artist Kurt Seligmann.
The Orange County Land Trust is dedicated to preserving the fields, forests, wetlands, ridgelines, river corridors and working farmland in and around Orange County for the benefit of the public. Since its inception, OCLT has helped protect nearly 5,000 acres of land through the negotiation of conservation agreements with private land owners, property donations, and the acquisition of private property. Through community events and public programming, OCLT seeks to create awareness of conservation and sustainability issues and to instill a sense of appreciation for the environment.
