I know I’m older than dirt when I glance around our house on the river. Many of the items we have used daily for decades, are relatively unknown to our grandchildren and great grandchildren.
The Chinese proverb states,” “If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.”
It’s been well-established that outdoor activities are beneficial to our overall physical, emotional and mental health.
Spring is definitely in the air. North Country Underground Railroad Historical Society cleaned up the grounds and museum for their opening the first Saturday in May.
The rewards of spring are being felt each day — nice long days, warmer weather, the greeting each morning of the songbirds. It makes for a lighter feeling for most of us and I know I am enjoying it.
Congratulations to Emmalee Turner, 2015 Pool Tournament of Champions Winner!
Westport outdoor guide Elizabeth Lee is playing it close the chest on where she’ll lead her interpretive hike “Wildflowers of the Champlain Valley” this Saturday, April 25, but she will choose one of the nearby trails maintained by Champlain Area Trails (CATS) after scouting to see which one has the very best wildflowers at the time.
Have you taken advantage of our April adoption special?
There’s no movie at the Grange this weekend, but next Saturday, May 4, a film called “Force Majeure” will be shown.
It appears the long, hard, Adirondack winter may finally be coming to a conclusion, and while many local anglers are still hauling around their ice fishing gear, it’s time to get out your trout gear as the annual “ice out” grows near.
I don’t know about you, but a lot of things remind me of song titles or lyrics.
I’ve seen the osprey roosting between the chevrons on the utility pole next to Exit 34 of the Interstate. We’ll see if it builds a new nest or not.
Hopeful that we have now had our last snow fall and we can move into spring.
Have you signed up yet for our Spring Bowling Tournament?
This Saturday, April 18, from 9 to 11 a.m., join Ticonderoga naturalists Glen and Malinda Chapman on the Champlain Area Trails (CATS) Coot Hill-Big Hollow Bird Walk and Hawk Watch, an interpretive hike along the CATS trail south of Port Henry with a gorgeous view looking out over Crown Point and the Champlain Bridge.
