On Hold

The blog has been on hold recently but not by choice.  Did you know there are only 24 hours in a day?  Well for the last few weeks it seems that 24 isn't enough.

We have been incredibly busy through the month of April and there's no slowing down in sight.  Our program attendance was over 1,000 individuals during April.  Many of our visitors were pre-school and elementary school kids visiting to learn about pond ecology, animals, insects, birds, and more.  As usual, our afternoons have been full of Boy Scout and Girl Scout groups eager to learn new information to be used to earn new badges.  And Steve has been busy visiting Bedford Village and Mount Kisco Elementary schools for afterschool enrichment.

When we've been fortunate to get a little "down time", we've attempted to finish some of our spring chores: trail maintenence, cleaning up the gardens, monitoring nesting activity in Bluebird and Wood duck houses, and readying mowers and weedeaters for lawn maintenence.  A big THANK YOU is given to our two interns from Yorktown High School for helping us with the aforementioned tasks and so many of the "little things" that constantly need our attention around here.

Fortunately during our recent frenzy we have had the chance to observe some of the sights and sounds of spring.  We have plenty of photos and stories to share from this past month.  Hang with us, and we'll get them up here as soon as possible.

Happy May,

-Adam Zorn, Naturalist

Sorry to hear that. I liked reading your blog during some downtime. I guess it's for the better considering attendance is up. Congrats and enjoy.
