In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and with careful consideration of the health of our community, we have decided to cancel the community festival previously scheduled for July 10th at Meadow Vue Ranch in Island Park. We are disappointed, but we look forward to planning many more events to celebrate and facilitate learning about our local wildlife when it is safe to do so.
