Thank you for your interest in submitting a proposal for a field trip at the Allegany Nature Pilgrimage, June 4-6th, 2021. Please complete and submit the proposal form and read the information below.
Who are Our Leaders?
Program leaders for the Allegany Nature Pilgrimage come from many walks of life. Some are professionals in their field of expertise; others pursue their areas of interest as an avocation. Some have been coming to the Pilgrimage for many years; others are new. All are passionate about sharing their knowledge about the natural world with others.
This year will be different. The COVID-19 pandemic will result in changes to almost every aspect of our field trips. Before submitting your proposal, please read through the following.
Field Trip Locations
Field Trips will be disbursed throughout the park. When submitting your proposal, you must indicate specifically where your Field Trip will start. Please take into consideration parking availability.
Please use the ASP Program Site Location Map to select your Field Trip location. The numbers correspond to signs placed throughout the park.
The schedule of when field trips start will be as follows:
Friday--2:00pm & 6:00pm
Saturday--6:00am, 10:00am, 2:00pm, 6:00pm
When committing to times on Friday and Sunday, please note that cabin check in time is 5:00pm and check out is 10:00am.
Please contact us if you would like to lead an all-day event.
To reserve a rustic cabin or tent campsite, visit www.reserveamerica.com. It is advised to stay in the Red House Area of the park. The majority of field trips will originate in that area. There are hotels in the Salamanca area. These are 15 to 25 minutes from the Red House Area of Allegany State Park.
A list of hotels is available at this link: http://www.alleganynaturepilgrimage.com/uploads/1/2/4/7/12470245/anp_lodging_2017.pdf
We are moving forward with planning in a positive and safe way. We must adhere to ALL New York State and Park rules. Even with the above rules and precautions, the state or park may not allow us to have the pilgrimage this year due to COVID-19 restrictions and regulations. We will keep you apprised of the situation. The entire committee looks forward to seeing you and thank you in advance for your devotion to the ANP.
After you submit your proposal, we will notify you of approval. Field trip proposal must be submitted and approved by February 28th in order to set up the online registration system. General registration is targeted to begin March 15th.
For the inconvenience caused this year, and to help defray the cost of registering for Field Trips by leaders and their families, leaders will be given an honorarium of $65 per field trip.
