On June 2nd enjoy a fun family day on Fairview Farm to honor our friend and conservation leader, the late Elizabeth (Betty) Merck.
A $20 per car load entrace fee will enable you to attend all of the following:

Alan Rennie will lead a group of adults (ages teen and up) while Jim Fenton will lead younger birders to look for some feathered friends! Please bring binoculars, there will be limited smaller pairs available for children. Includes a light breakfast.
9-10 am: Streamside Meditation and Nature Journals
Dedicate an hour of stillness to yourself with Lauren Theis, certified yoga and forest meditation instructor. Wear comfortable clothes for some gentle stretching exercises and bring a blanket or towel to sit on for a few guided meditation “invitations.” This meditation is suitable for adults and children preteen and up. During this program, Joanne Endahl will be leading a nature journaling program for children ages 11 and under, where participants will create their own nature journal and be guided through a number of activities to get their journals started!
10-11 am: Bird and Butterfly Garden Tour for Adults and Make a Seed Bomb for Kids
Daina Gulbis, local Master Gardener and RHA educator, will introduce adults and teens to the specimens found in our Bird and Butterfly garden, all of which are caterpillar hosts, nectar or seed sources to native birds and butterflies!
