Hidden Villa preserve in LAH set to host free access day, photo contest this month

Hidden Villa has scheduled a free access day Nov. 23, with trails and picnic areas open to all for a post-Thanksgiving outing.

Visitors to the organic farm and nature preserve can participate in a photo contest by snapping shots of their favorite Hidden Villa moments.

Starting in mid-November, Hidden Villa will host a monthlong photo contest.

Participants can visit its Instagram (@hiddenvilla) and Facebook ( pages for contest regulations and weekly rewards.

Photographers whose shots are selected as weekly winners will win their choice of Hidden Villa’s honey or olive oil, both locally grown.

According to Hidden Villa representatives, the photo contest is “all about the gratitude we have for this magical space.” They report that visitors often share with them photos that “bring joy, encapsulate wonder and curiosity, or tell tales of adventure with our animals and on wooded trails.”

To support its programs and mission, Hidden Villa is set to participate in Giving Tuesday Nov. 27, the global online philanthropic campaign that kicks off the charitable giving season. To donate, visit
