Featured Upcoming Events
This coming Saturday OSFR will be co-sponsoring an Earth Day celebration in Brooker near the New River, a tributary to the Santa Fe. Come meet your neighbors in a fun family day of events. Carol Mosely writes:
Brooker needs to know that they can benefit from eco-tourism instead of destructive industries. And the best standing to oppose destructive industries is to use and appreciate what we fear we might lose, the New River. Please come and help spread the word.
IF YOU DON’T KNOW BROOKER, YOU REALLY SHOULD
If you don’t know Brooker, you really should. And if you do know this sweet, little pastoral town, you already understand what makes west Bradford so special. That’s why the Bradford Environmental Forum is hosting a free family event at the Brooker Town Hall on April 20th. We think Bradford County has the potential to be known as an eco-tourism destination. So our Earth Day and Easter public event will highlight that and feature appreciation for the lovely New River and celebrate nature’s wonders.
There will be a kids’ (of all ages) station to make free pollinator houses and feed the earthworms. Take some home to start your own worm farm. There will be games and prizes where everyone is a winner. And you can take a whack to crack the giant egg pinata. Win an assortment of very cool prizes or one of the raffle items, like an Army Navy hammock with mosquito net or a Jr. snorkel kit with mask and fins.
And you will have a chance to canoe or kayak on the New River. Bring yours if you want or the Sierra Club will accommodate with theirs. Then stay for a spaghetti dinner to meet and greet and share ideas for our region as a desirable eco-destination. It’s a great chance to leave technology at home for the day and enjoy hands on, face to face fun and the tranquility of a lazy trip on the river.
We’ll be there all day from 11am to 6pm at the Brooker Town Hall, under the water tower off of CR18 (17435 Testone Ave.) and behind the pile of railroad ties. For more info call 904-368-0291.
Hope to see you there!!
