The Henry L. Ferguson Museum
Presents the 17th Annual Thanksgiving
Trail Clearing & Beach Clean Up
(Plus “Oysters After” Party)
You and your family are invited to join the rest of the HLFM community for a festive and rewarding Post-Thanksgiving afternoon of trail clearing, beach cleaning, and oyster consumption. It’s a wonderful tradition in its 17th year that is as good for the soul as it is for the island – and the waistline.
When: Friday, November 25, 2022
Time: 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Where: Meet at the Museum before proceeding to the Nature Trails and Beach Clearing. As many of the trails are in good shape, we will expand assignments to include invasive control and beach clean-up.
Tools: Please bring tools you can handle SAFELY. NO CHAINSAWS.
Cleaning: We will provide heavy-duty garbage bags for beach and path cleaning.
Dress: We suggest you wear long pants, long sleeved shirts, socks and gloves to battle thorns and poison ivy.
“Oysters After” Party
All participants are invited immediately thereafter to a post-clearing party AT THE MUSEUM from approximately 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. to enjoy drinks and oysters. Thanks to Fishers Island Oyster Farm, Summer Shuckers, Bottlerocket, and Fishers Island Lemonade for their generous sponsorship of this festive Island tradition.
During the reception, please check out and enjoy the current annual exhibit “Year Round, A Celebration of Community” on display, curated by Pierce Rafferty and generously sponsored by Altus Partners and Chubb.
