Unbeatable Bee-zzzz - Free Program at Brooks Memorial

What superhero can carry 122 times her own weight,  fly 5 million miles on a gallon of honey and see ultraviolet colors invisible to us? Yes! The Mighty Bee!

Bees can buzz along at 15 mph and beat their wings 200 times per second. What do bees do with their superpowers? They help provide the world with flowers, fruit, and even chocolate! One in three bites of food we eat is thanks to these pollinators! And don’t forget honey. To make a pound of honey, bees must fly 55,000 miles and visit around 2 million flowers.

SeVWA's 2015 E. coli Monitoring of Local River Sites Began June 17th

The Southeastern Vermont Watershed Alliance (SeVWA) began its monitoring program for the summer of 2015 on Wednesday, June 17th. We will be testing 27 sites on eight rivers and streams every other week through the end of August. This year, we have sites on the West River, Rock River, North Branch Brook, Williams River (including South Branch and Middle Branch), Saxtons River, Sacketts Brook, and Whetstone Brook.

Escherichia coli, more commonly known as E. coli, is a bacteria that is found in the guts of all warm blooded animals, including humans. Most E. coli will not make a person sick, but sometimes they can become pathogenic which means they can cause illness. Additionally, the presence of E. coli in waters acts as an indicator for the presence of other, more difficult to test for pathogens. We publish our results to the public in order to help everyone make informed decisions about recreating in Vermont’s waters.

In Search of a Home for Miss Daisy

We are in search of a loving home for a wonderful older female dog, who we took in a couple of months ago, but has let us know that she would prefer to not live out her golden years with two rambunctious babes in diapers. She is great with people, cats, dogs, kids, walks on or off leash, great in the car, and stays home alone during the day too.

She is sweet, and while she did express her need for some space from the tots, I know for a fact she is good with kids because she came from home where she was the beloved companion of a girl from toddler to teen. Anyone who has any ideas, please let me know! ♥

This post was created with love.

Celebrate Solar Tours Saturday

Sunny Skies Forecasted for First Annual Statewide Celebrate Solar Tours Saturday

Sunny skies are forecasted for the weekend of the Summer Solstice when more than forty locations throughout Vermont will open their doors for Celebrate Solar Tours. Like the open sugarhouse weekend in the spring and open art studio weekend in the fall, the summertime tours will give Vermonters and visitors the opportunity to get an up-close view of solar systems to learn about the technology, solar economics, and the benefits of solar to our communities. Many locations will offer refreshments, music or other entertainment like community walking tours, miniature golf and on-site yoga.

Super Costumes Needed!

Desperately seeking tween-sized superman and spiderman costumes.  They will be used by kids in one of NEYT's upcoming Melodrama Summer Camps.  I am hoping to borrow, rather than buy or rent.  

These would be returned, and the generous lender would receive gracious acknowledgement for their donation.  Please contact via call, text (579-9756) or email (isewfunny@gmail.com).

Thanks!

Anyone Know Who Helps Injured Birds?

I found a bird this AM that might have an injured wing. I doesn't try to move away when I approach it on my deck.

It seems to be a mature bird but on the smaller side. It is yellowish-green on top and white on the belly. The edges of the wing have a black and white pattern and it has a rather pointy beak.

It was breathing heavily I think (though maybe not?).

So my question is: Does anyone treat and try to rehabilitate injured or sick birds?
thanks
