We are all disappointed that our regular First Friday programs have been cancelled. However, the art teachers at the Granville schools have shared some of their students’ work.

Grace, Marie & Eliza wanted to get out for a bit. Yesterday, I took them with me to Price Chopper to help get supplies for a picnic. I told them they needed to wear masks and to behave! I’ll put a description with each picture. I think they had a good time!

The adventures of the Dahl family continues….. Grace, Jennie and Alice were very excited to learn about animal skulls at the Pember Nature Preserve. They stopped in for a quick program before heading down the trails. Yes, the trails are open! Grace is a big fan of skulls and educated Jennie and Alice on the woodchuck skull. Did you know that their teeth never stop growing and will grow up to 1/16th of an inch each week? That’s why they …

The continuing adventures of the Dahl family There’s a lot of work to do before we can plant this garden. We’re waiting for the plow and harrows to arrive. There will probably be beans, tomatoes and cucumbers here. We might even add a few squash. At the front of the building, Ella is trying to decide if the geranium and the spike will be enough (Thanks to Van Ripers Gardens for providing these.). Then she and Grace are working on …

I want to take the kayaks out on the water tomorrow.I’ll check, I need to figure out how we’re going to store the leftover …

The adventures of the Dahl family continues… Jennie, Alice and Grace decided to head to the Pember Nature Preserve for a program on Bird’s Nests. It seems Jennie knows all about birds and their nests and even educated Alice and Grace. The Nature Center and the Pember’s loan kit has many nests to investigate. Please remember that people cannot collect eggs, nests or feathers of migratory birds. The Pember has a special federal and state license to collect these items …

The continuing adventures of the Dahl family Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it began in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. The girls are disappointed there is no parade today but love to show their patriotism. Ella and Hannah traveled up to North Street to see …

The continuing adventures of the Dahl family The Dahls wanted to get out in the beautiful sunshine before the day gets too hot. We have lovely benches and a pretty garden behind the Pember. This overlooks the beautiful Mettowee River. They can also see the walking bridge over the river and behind those trees, the Slate Valley Museum.Jennie wonders, “Why is it called the ‘Slate Valley’ ?” Slate was discovered in this area in the 1830s. There is an area …
