Not a Sierra Club event, but we thought you might be interested in this event. Greenbrook Nature Sanctuary opens its gates to introduce non-members to this 165-acre gem of nature on the Palisades Cliffs. Not a traditional Meetup event attendees come and go as you please between noon and 3 PM. View the award-winning orientation center, take short guided walks, absolutely no free roaming permitted, enjoy light refreshments and if so inclined join and receive your very own key giving you access to over 6 miles of trails, breathtaking views of our waterfall, the Hudson River and beyond, as far as Long Island and New Rochelle, NY.
