Keara Giannotti: our first Instagram takeover

Starting next week, we’ll be handing over our Instagram feed to local photographers, nature lovers, and Black Run Preserve aficionados. Our first takeover will be Keara Giannotti

Keara Giannotti Instagram takeover July 16 - 20Keara Giannotti is a naturalist and the director of Camp Creek Run, a summer camp and year-round environmental education facility in Marlton. She grew up exploring the pine barrens and is a Friends of the Black Run Preserve board member. While she doesn’t claim to have any particular photo style, the best compliment she ever got was that her pics contain “all the details of the world and not a devil in them”. She looks forward to taking a virtual nature walk with you next week during her Instagram takeover, and she hopes you’ll chime in with your own experiences with her subject matter.

Send an email to us at if you are interested in taking over Instagram in the future.

Restoration / Native Planting was a Huge Success!

Thank you to the over one hundred fifty volunteers who helped plant 1550 native plants, removed four dump truck loads of concrete and debris, installed 300′ of barriers, and created space for a new informal parking lot. These hardworking volunteers exceeded our expectations for such a extensive multi-faceted work event. This level of success was completely unexpected. This was our first Restoration Project in the BRP.
