2017 Calendar

Canada Goosecanada-geese-5595
For the second year I have put together a Birds Of The Great Swamp Conservancy calendar. They will be available at The GSC nature center located at the corners of Pine Ridge Road and North Main Street, Canastota, New York for the price of 10 dollars (all profits going to the GSC). 

American Robin  (March)robin-7644

Your purchase gets you a quality product produced by the Oneida Print Shop

Great Blue Heron  (May)great-blue-heron-1108

And too you’re promoting environmental education and conservation. That’s a win-win.

So why not stop at the GSC, (store hours are Tuesday thru Saturday 10 until 3) and get yours? Better yet, pick one or more up as you attend one of their special events (check out their website).

In closing I want to comment on The Fall Migration Festival. There was so much going on, from many games for children to a nature walk in the woods, horse rides to Chicken BBQ, birds of prey exhibitors to fun basket raffles, live music wafting in the air to the great photos and insight from the GSC’s own Swamp Snappers photo club. There were crafters ( I bought some goat cheese, it was delicious) and their wares to very informative nature talks with representatives of the Beaver Lake Nature Center, and so much more.

It was a great event. The best part for me was seeing the smiles on everyones faces. It was nice to see children and parents alike, having fun together. If you are looking for something to do with your family think of attending one of the GSC’s many events. They are both informative and fun; events a family can enjoy together.

This was all made possible by many hardworking volunteers. I want to say to all the volunteers, your hard work paid off, it was evident in the smiles of the attendees.
