Spring Break Pics

Although our class size was small, we had fun! We learned and we crafted.

The Nature Walk enlightened us with frog egs and sounds, deer tracks, funny fungus, coyote scat, and Canada geese nesting & honking with the signs of spring all around us. We spent 1.5 hours walking and investigating the trails off South Grimes Hill Road of the Nature Preserve.

Our reptile program started with a half hour video on reptiles. How interesting! Then we got down to business personalizing our snakes.

The nature inspired art program proved to be just fun. We created beautiful butterflies. The photo cube was painted and adorned with seashells. We ran out of time, so participants took home shells to finish their cubes.

Here are some photos. Sorry we missed you.

Owl Walk

Don’t forget about our owl walk tonight at the Nature Preserve 6pm-8pm. Meet up at the South Grimes Hill Road entrance to the Preserve which is off NY22 in Hebron. Bring a flashlight. It will be about 25 degrees but the weather will be clear. Hope the owls will be talking!

Making a Difference

Here’s a big shout-out THANK YOU to the following who volunteered their time on Saturday, October 1st helping Bernie clear trails at the Hebron Nature Preserve: Board Treasurer Bob Tatko with his huge tractor mower, Board member Murray McHugh with his chainsaw & various loppers, Steve Duell, the Aubrey family (Nate, Amy, Jacob, Josiah, Aaron & Jeremiah), the Lester’s (Stephen & Rene) and Skye MacLeod. The weather was overcast and cool but the trails are now clear. They will get another cutting this coming week. We sincerely thank these wonderful people for donating their time. A little time making a significant difference.

HNP Bridge

If you plan on taking a trip to the Hebron Nature Preserve, please be aware that the floating bridge is out of order. A section has broken it’s chain and it’s unsafe to cross. We will keep you posted on when it has been repaired.

The Hike is On!!

Song Bird Hike is still on for tomorrow beginning at 11:00am but please note that this is only an hour long hike until 12:00pm. The time of 1:00pm was a misprint. We are meeting at the South Grimes Hill Road entrance to the Nature Preserve. You can’t miss it with a nice sitting area around a vernal pool. Dress for ticks and the weather is suppose to be overcast. No drop offs. Parents can wait at the parking area or join us for the walk.

Spring is in the air and the birds are talking all about it!!
