posted Thursday, October 4, 2012

Hello and Happy Autumn!

The Chester Conservation Committee will have its monthly meeting this coming Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 7:00 pm. We'll meet at the Chester-Andover Elementary School.

On the agenda:
- Report of the trail work completed this past weekend.
- Report of the responses and interest received at the display at the Fall Foliage Festival
- A discussion of how we can let more folks know about the trails in Chester and perhaps surrounding town.
- Shall we plan a display for window at The Message office?
- Update on the Pinnacle Disc Golf course proposal
- Finalize plans for the upcoming Invasive Earthworm presentation. Start planning for the other presentations as well.
- New name?
- New ideas as they arise

Please join us! We are always looking for new ideas to encourage Chester residents to take advantage of the wonderful outdoor resources we have in our town.

An Interactive Nature Program for Preschoolers: "Learning from the Abenaki"
The Nature Museum at Grafton
The Mighty Acorns Club provides creative, exploratory preschool programs which celebrate curiosity and encourage a love and respect for the natural world. On Friday, December 8, from 10 AM to 11:30 AM, the Mighty Acorns Club will experience "Being Connected to Nature: Learning from the Abenaki." You and your young nature-lover will investigate Abenaki artifacts, hear the Abenaki story of creation, and go on a scavenger hunt outdoors to test observation skills in nature. We will discover what life was like before our time, and how the Abenaki have developed a strong relationship with the land through hunting and gathering. When pre-registered on-line, The Mighty Acorns Club costs $5 per child. Drop-ins are welcome at the door for $8. To register, or for more information: visit www.nature-museum.org or call 802-843-2111.
