CCOM’s 50th Anniversary Hikes

Take a hike down memory lane with CCOM as we celebrate our 50th year!

We will be guiding a number of very special hikes in 2020 to celebrate CCOM’s land preservation history, beginning with a hike in Montauk County Park – CCOM’s first victory of 1,157 acres preserved in 1975. CCOM was founded in 1970 by Hilda Lindley in opposition to an East Hampton Town proposal to build 1,400 houses on the 1,000-acre historical home and burial ground of the Montaukett Indians –  Indian Field, now Montauk County Park.

Montauk County Park Hike – 3 Miles
Saturday, April 4th @ 10am / Hike Leader: Ed Johann / Park & Meet at Third House

The walk will include the wooded portion of the Paumanok Path (a 125-mile trail that runs from Montauk Point to Rocky Point) that passes by Third House and extends to the southern edge of the central grasslands. The terrain is slightly rolling and easy to walk. Ed Johann is President of Third House Nature Center, a writer, educator and naturalist. During this guided tour, he will describe the flora and fauna of this part of the park as well as the history of how this unique 1,157-acre parcel was preserved.
