Trail work in the Parker Preserve
Coordinated by the New Jersey Conservation Foundation
This expansive property encompasses almost 14 square miles in the heart of the New Jersey Pine Barrens, and is accessible by a network of sandy roads that wind though pitch pine forest and blueberry fields, and run along the preserve’s cedar swamp, shallow lakes and pristine tributaries of the West Branch of the Wading River.
Arrive at the Chatsworth Lake entrance to the Parker Preserve between 9:00 and 10:00 a.m. Driving time from Princeton is about an hour and fifteen minutes.
Trail work: We will be installing interpretive signs and doing trail clearing and maintenance.
Our work will end by 4:00 (followed by an optional one-hour trip to Apple Pie Hill).
Please bring: A daypack with lunch and beverages, insect repellent and work gloves. Wear appropriate clothing, especially long pants and shirts. Cameras and binoculars are recommended.
Tools, water and snacks will be provided.
Please see the NJCF website for more information and directions.
If you can spare a few hours before the trip, we highly recommend reading The Pine Barrens by John McPhee '53.
If you have questions, please contact Philo Elmer '69.
Please email Arlen Hastings '80 to let us know if you will be participating. Families are welcome. We will organize carpools if enough people are interested.
Volunteers will receive PA3 caps as long as the supply lasts.

Mediterra Restaurant and Taverna, 29 Hulfish Street, Princeton NJ
Come join PA3 alums and their guests to celebrate the Ides of March, not an ominous day at all, but merely the 15th day of the month, according to the ancient Romans. We’ll explore Italy through its viticulture in a tasting with food pairings developed especially for us. It’s been a while since we had a tasting and we’re looking forward to this one. Sign-up soon because these tastings have been very popular in the past!
Cost is $30/person for PA3 dues paying members and one guest and $35 for others.

GLOBAL NETNIGHT: NETWORKING WITHOUT BORDERS
When: February 15, 7-9pm
Where: Maclean House, Princeton University
The Princeton Area Alumni Association will join with Princeton alumni associations around the world in a Global NetNight: Networking Without Borders. As the world shrinks, Princeton alumni need access to a networking environment that connects them to alumni in the United States and in countries around the world. Networking Without Borders is a first step in this direction. Through LinkedIn, participants will connect with one another before, during and after the event.
The event will feature Maisha Walker’94 on the subject of Networking in the Age of Social Media and a structured networking exercise over beverages and hors d'oeuvres. All alumni are invited to attend.
We hope you will join us for this global event.
RSVP to Kiki Karoglou*05 at email@example.com by 2/11/11.
This event is free.

Update: Through generous donations, PA3 and it's members were able to contribute $5,000 toward the research grants. This money will fund at least 2 scholars' grants. The scholars will be selected this Spring.
PA3 is raising funds for research grants to be awarded by the Princeton University Library to scholars from all over the world to spend a month at Princeton using the university’s unique bibliographic resources, including rare books, manuscripts and special collections. The grants funded by PA3 will be allocated to Princeton University alumni, whenever possible. The grants are up to $3,500 each.
Be assured, our funding will not be "gilding the lily" --- the Library receives more proposals from highly qualified applicants than it can fund.
At the culmination of each visit, the researcher will present his/her work to the university community, including alumni and guests.
