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.

PLEASE NOTE: We have made the difficult decision to cancel our April hike, but will keep the May 9th hike as tentative for the time being.

Saturday, May 9th / Hither Woods Guided Hike / 10am
Hike Leader: Richard Whalen / 4.5 Miles / Park & Meet at Navy Pier (end of Navy Rd.)

The group will hike into the Rocky Point / Quincetree Landing area of Hither Woods, starting from Rod’s Valley at the end of Navy Road.  The hike will be on easy terrain with no major hills, and there are plenty of water views. Richard Whalen, a key leader of the effort to preserve Hither Woods, will talk about its history and how this magnificent parcel was saved by various individuals and groups, including CCOM.

Directions: Montauk Hwy. to Second House Rd., turn on Navy Rd. Take to end at parking lot.

Saturday, April 25th / Meet at CCOM Office / 10am – 1pm (Rain Date: Sunday 4/26, 10am-1pm)
Do you know that 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and CCOM? We have hosted a Montauk cleanup in celebration of Earth Day every year since 1970!
Come celebrate the beauty of Montauk with us on Saturday, April 25th. Have a favorite spot in Montauk? Help keep it pristine and do your part for Montauk!  This year the dumpster donated by Mickey’s Carting will be located at the CCOM Office at 6 S. Elmwood Ave. – come by for buckets, trash bags and gloves, and then head to that favorite spot. Once the bags are filled with debris, throw them in the dumpster and warm up with some coffee, cider and donuts back at CCOM!

The typical springtime drizzle is expected, but if the weather is bad the Rain Date for the Cleanup is set for the following day, Sunday, April 26th at 10am.

Pitch in to help Keep Montauk Montauk!
