Erica Phillips Trail Opening Ceremony

Join Us As We Celebrate Erica Phillips Trail Opening Ceremony

Join us as we celebrate the opening of Erica’s Overlook Trail at Kinderhook Creek Preserve. The new trail marked with green blazes, is named in memory of Erica Phillips who passed away in 2017 after a brief illness complicated by Cystic Fibrosis. Although Erica had a lifelong condition that often limited her abilities, her achievements surpassed those typically associated with a person with CF. A 2006 graduate of Columbia High School, she then studied Animal Science at University of Rhode Island, graduating in 2010. Erica went on to become a licensed Veterinary Technician and worked at the Nassau Veterinary Clinic. Erica dedicated her life to helping our four-legged companions, and was always there to greet her patients with a warm smile and a helping hand. She often walked her dog Ranger at Kinderhook Creek Preserve. Our hope is that Erica’s Overlook Trail will provide visitors with the same peace and calm that the Preserve brought Erica. Saturday, September 25 • 2 - 4 pm (rain date September 26)
