From Trash to Treasure: Display at Howe Library

It takes a village to keep our trails clear and our forests and streams clean- without our incredible volunteers, we simply couldn’t keep up! Check out our display at the Howe Library June 1st through July 26th* to see some neat artifacts gathered during clean up days at Moose Mountain and Mink Brook Nature Preserve.



*Thanks to a huge amount of interest in the display, the Howe will be keeping it up for another month! Visit now through July 26th, or check back in August for a digital tour of the items and history.
