On Sunday September 23rd the Friends of Cherry Valley along with refuge staff held their sixth annual Fall Festival. It took place at the Headquarters Property (former Cherry Valley Golf Club) in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania on a perfect fall day. Over 400 visitors attended the event which included many all-ages and family-friendly activities. Perhaps the greatest accomplishment of the day was the planting of 360 trees by volunteers along Cherry Creek in support of its ongoing restoration. The event was an overwhelming success thanks to the help of numerous partner organizations, a ton of volunteers, the Friends of Cherry Valley, and several dedicated refuge staff members.
