PROGRAMS AND EVENTS: OVERVIEW
All year long WLC offers free programming with our First Saturdays on the Trail, our collaborative Film & Discussion Series, and the collaborative Woodstock Pollinator Pathway Project. We also offer special events throughout the year that gather our community to support our work.
- First Saturdays on the Trail
The First Saturdays on the Trail program series is our monthly outdoor educational programs. All programs are led by local volunteer experts and are free to the public. The programs connect the community, especially children, to the lands we protect.
- Film & Discussion Series
Since its founding in 2013, The Film & Discussion series brings the community together for a program each month from January - April to learn and discuss how to solve some of the planet’s most pressing issues with a local context. Learn how you can make simple changes in your own life for maximum impact and find out about local initiatives doing the same on a community level. The Film & Discussion Series is brought to the community by Woodstock Land Conservancy, Woodstock NY Transition, and Woodstock Jewish Congregation. The Film & Discussion Series is free and open to all ages. Donations are welcome and help to support these programs.

- Woodstock Pollinator Pathway
The web of life depends on pollinators. In the face of precipitous pollinator decline, in 2020 we collaboratively launched a community-wide project to help people change their plant choices and their mowing practices. Together we can create a “Pollinator Pathway” with vital habitat not only for pollinators, but for birds and many other forms of wildlife. Join us and become a pollinator hero! https://woodstocknypollinatorpathway.org
Upcoming Programs & Events
- October 15th- Scarecrow Fest!
We are beyond excited to introduce a new community celebration this Fall, Scarecrow Fest!
As with our past community events Scarecrow Fest will be a celebration for all ages. The event will feature fun opportunities to engage with the unique environment and culture of Woodstock while enjoying art making, family friendly activities, local foods, local vendors and live music. The fun doesn’t stop there. We are also calling on our community to immerse themselves in the festivities by making scarecrows from sustainably sourced materials for our scarecrow contests and auction. All proceeds will benefit Woodstock Land Conservancy and the Comeau trails.
