CAPE ANN VERNAL POND TEAM UPDATE

Rick Roth writes:

“Nice time at the Farmer’s Market on Thursday.  Great weather, great crowd.  Thanks to volunteers Colleen Anderson and John Gallagher.  And thanks to the crew from Art Haven, Amelia, Avery and Natalie, for leading the Kid’s activity.

 

Saturday was the Petco Reptile Rally.  Nathan Dubrow was there with his green tree python.  I had a few snakes there and it was a fun event. Thanks to the Petco people who helped us out: Amanda, Acacia, Zac and Caroline.

 

Saturday  July 26, 2014  Time 10am

Snakes of New England and the World- 1 hour live animal presentation.

Sawyer Free Library, 2 Dale Ave., Gloucester MA

 

Saturday  August 2,  9am-5pm

Book Fair at the Manchester Public Library

We’ll be there all day with a bunch of snakes and I believe that someone is going to lead a Kid’s activity.

 

Friday and Saturday  August 8-9  9am-5pm

Gloucester Sidwalk Bazaar, Main Street in front of the Sargent House, near Bananas, where we’ve been for several years.

Bunch of snakes.

 

So… we really need lots of volunteers for the next three weeks.  Remember, even if you can do an hour or two, it will give someone a lunch break or something.  These events are great exposure for us, so please get in touch and let me know that you want to help out.  Those of you that have been around for a while know that I can really pester people about volunteering to the point where they wish they were never born.  Don’t let this happen to you.  Volunteer.

 

Meanwhile… this really cool vernal pond thing is about to take place, likely in the next week or two.  The emergence of newly metamorphosed wood frogs.  They look just like the adults except tiny.  Like 1/2 inch.  We’ll be doing a daytime field trip to see these guys soon.  Nick Taormina is scouting the pond to see just when they start hopping.  Keep watching your CAVPT emails for final details on this exciting outing.  And don’t forget to volunteer.

 

Thanks,  Rick

The library was packed with Carol’s colleagues, friends, and well-wishers, all with hearts full of thanks and gratitude for her guiding hand throughout the library’s recent years of growth and development. Everyone spoke of Carol’s extraordinary dedication, tireless work ethic, and positive spirit during this period of great change and challenges.
