Bluffton Public Library: Underwater Life in Our Watershed
Tuesday, July 12, 6 p.m.
Did you know that the insects, mollusks and crustaceans—aquatic macroinvertebrates—that live in our streams and rivers are like the canaries that miners used to keep down in the coal mines? Their presence (or absence) can help us determine the health of our waterways. Meet some of these ‘water canaries’ when you join representatives from The Quarry Farm at the Bluffton Public Library. This program is for Adults and Teens as well as children with a parent or guardian present. Registration is required by July 8 at The Bluffton Public Library at 419-358-5016.
You Say You’d Like to Volunteer Here?
Saturday, July 30, 1 to 2 p.m.
Meet in Seitz Family Pavilion, 1/8 mile north of 14321 Road 7L, Pandora
It takes a lot of willing hands and hearts to keep the trails and gardens in shape, to remove invasive honeysuckle from the nature preserve, to mend fences and repair buildings in the farm animal sanctuary, and to meet and greet visitors during special events. Spend some time with us to see if you would like to be part of the dedicated volunteer team.
8th Annual Quarry Farm Jam
Saturday, September 10, 6 to 9 p.m.
Seitz Family Pavilion, 1/8 mile north of 14321 Road 7L, Pandora
Whether you play an instrument like a virtuoso, just like to pretend or sing along or listen, spend a sweet late summer evening with music under the big red roof alongside calls from the nature preserve. Bring your own chair. Refreshments will be available, including homemade cookies.
