|Environmental Club Members and Parents
|Welcome to the 2006 Winter Season! We are excited to begin the second half of this year’s Environmental Club at Stillwater Montessori School!
Our Meetings will continue to be held at the Page Farm and Home Museum or Elementary school, every other Thursday from 3:30 – 4:45 p.m., except during school vacations or storm days. The complete list of planned dates is printed below. If any changes in the schedule are necessary, we will notify you. Please note that our first meeting is _Thursday, January 26^th _ at the Page Farm and Home Museum with a special program with Allen Sockabasin, Passamaquoddy storyteller and singer. Allen will be sharing his new book, “Thanks to the Animals”, with us. If you are interested in getting a copy of his book we will have them available and the environmental club will get a percentage of the sales to use for our activities this spring. The cost of the book is $16.95 and Allen will sign them. We are so excited to have Allen come. Please let me know if you plan to attend!!! AND if you plan to buy a book, PLEASE sign-up on bulletin board by Jan. 17th so we can order them.
In the coming weeks, we shall be continuing our field studies with birds and will be having two programs by Fields Pond Nature Center at the Page Farm on birds (dates to be announced). We will also participate again in the Bangor Garden Show this spring. We look forward to a very busy and exciting spring as we head toward our celebration of birds at Fields Pond on May 13^th (International Migratory Bird Day). We have partnered with Maine Audubon, Maine Inland Fish and Wildlife, and Eastern Maine Community College so far and are looking to other partners to join us in our projects. We’ll be sharing more information about these at our club meetings and in letters to you.
We look forward to seeing you!
- Joanne, Al and Elisabeth
