Glen Helen Association will host the pancake breakfast fundraiser on Saturday, March 21, 10 a.m.–1 p.m. at the Outdoor Education Center. Unlimited pancakes and sausage will be served, with live bluegrass music, close encounters with ambassador animals, guided hikes and other activities. Guided hikes from Trailside Museum begin at 10 a.m. Cost is $8 for members, and $10 for nonmembers. Children 12 and under are free. Parking is limited, and hiking from the Corry Street parking lot is encouraged.

Volunteers are needed for this event; contact asimonson@glenhelen.org to volunteer.

That same day, hikers are also invited to join a biodiversity hike departing from Trailside Museum at 12:30 p.m. and returning around 2:30. In celebration of World Forestry Day, hikers can collect photographic evidence of the Glen’s biodiversity. The event is weather dependent, and participants are encouraged to register in advance by emailing tspencer@glenhelen.org.

On Sunday, March 22, Glen Helen Director Nick Boutis will lead an early spring bird hike from 9 to 11 a.m. The hike departs from Trailside Museum.

Tonight, Thursday, March 19, the Glen will also host a screening and discussion of the film “The Mountains Will Wait for You” in the Glen Helen Auditorium from 7 to 9 p.m. The film explores the story of Grace Hudowalski, the first woman to climb the 46 high peaks of New York’s Adirondack Mountains.
