Local birders Chris Fischer (NEPAS) and Owen Worozbyt (LHVA) will lead the walk along a recently completed section of the LRH trail in the Mid Valley. The walk is open to all – young and old, regardless of birdwatching experience – and will be easy and relaxed, covering no more than a mile along the flat (and mostly paved) trail. Participants should meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Laurel Street Trailhead, located at the southern terminus of Laurel Street in Archbald (#19 on this map). Parking is available. Binoculars and a field guide are recommended.

Endangered Species Artwork Sought for Silent Auction to Benefit Audubon

We were recently contacted by Avery Kimble, a fifth grade student who is currently attending a home school co-op at The Stoneworks Learning Center in Honesdale. Avery wrote:

I am planning to raise funds for your society through a silent art auction to be held at The Cooperage in Honesdale on May 27, 2014. [time TBA]

The after school / home school group decided to identify some problems in our community and try to think of a solution to them. Our idea was to educate people so we could all make a difference together. We hope we can accomplish this with a public program to be held on the evening of May 27, 2014.

My topic (or problem) is endangered animals. I thought to support those who are trying to make a difference, I could ask people to make any type of endangered species artwork for a silent auction to be held at the program. So I would like to invite you to make art of any endangered animal and donate it to my auction.

If you are not willing to donate your art, but are willing to bring it to be displayed on May 27, that would be great too.

All money from the auction will be donated to the NEPA Audubon Society.

Avery tells us that she chose Northeast Pennsylvania Audubon because of our focus on education and our active website, which she found via one of our updates on HB-1576, state legislation that poses a great threat to endangered and threatened species in Pennsylvania. (Incidentally, it appears a vote on this bill will be held the 1st week of May. Stay tuned.)

Donations of artwork depicting any type of endangered or threatened species are greatly appreciated! Please call Avery at (570) 251-8546 to arrange for your artwork to be picked up.

Please join us at The Cooperage on May 27th (time TBA) for the silent auction and help support this local youth-driven volunteer project for the benefit of environmental education and advocacy in Northeastern PA.
