Spring has run into summer and we are enjoying the lazy, hazy days of July. Mother nature has left her mark with some strong storms -- but minimal damage on the Conservancy property -- and the fun and learning continue at Millport.
A big welcome to our new members who joined Millport recently, and a sincere "thank you" to those who renewed their memberships. We hope to see you on the trails and enjoying the property. If your membership has lapsed, it is not too late. Memberships can be renewed online in minutes; we'd love to have you back!
Spring featured our annual Watershed Awareness Day, Fly on the Run, the annual Pennsylvania Bird Count, and the 20th Sense of Wonder Camp for Girls. The girls spent a week with us – check their Facebook page for pictures of their time spent at Millport. It was a wonderful week and all the campers experienced a great time exploring, meeting new friends and excitedly greeting campers from previous years. This year was their first time at Millport, and we were glad to welcome such an enthusiastic group.
Our permaculture classes continue (What is that, you ask? See below!), and the trails are alive with something exciting around every bend; butterflies, baby ducklings, deer, bunnies and trout are all in evidence this summer. Come, see, listen and enjoy.
I hope you have had a safe and enjoyable summer, and can enjoy the rest of the warm months with a visit to Millport.
