lglc logoThe Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) has announced a family-friendly party at Up Yonda Farm on Saturday, August 18, from 11 am to 1 pm to celebrate its 30th anniversary.

The free event will feature local food trucks, drink vendors, face painting and more as a way to engage and thank all of the organization’s friends, supporters and community partners.

The LGLC reports that over the past three decades, the organization and its partners have permanently protected 10,867 acres of land and over 6.5 miles of Lake George shoreline through purchased and donated land acquisition, conservation easements and innovative community collaborations. In addition, the LGLC creates and maintains more than 38 miles of trails for year-round recreation and educational opportunities.

With a focus on local food trucks and vendors, the event is expected to offer a variety of food and drink options for all palettes. Participating vendors will include The Plaid Pancake, offering sweet Belgian waffles, ADK Brewery’s Hops, Chops & Roll truck featuring classic food truck fare, Lake George Soda Works providing handmade sodas, and 9 Miles East, offering farm fresh options including vegan and vegetarian friendly items.

Vendors offering free services include Ben & Jerry’s Bolton Landing, Casey Beal Designs, offering face painting for all ages, and Nancy Kimball, who will be in attendance with her non-releasable raptors for viewing. Up Yonda Farm will also have volunteers and educators present to host guests throughout their many fun and educational exhibits.
