Here are some scenes at the sign-up desk for the Radnor Memorial Library and Radnor Conservancy Eco-Tour that took place on Saturday, June 21, 2014. Pictured here are Sharon Martin, Tracy Pulos, Colin Hingley, Pam Sedor, John Miller. Kathleen Pollack was there, too. On-site at 7 community sites were Jeanne LaRouche, Bob LaRouche, Lucy Carroll, Dave Toomey, Laura Luker, Laurie Miccolis, Jay Junior. 

The following sites were visited by about 50 people who signed up for the Eco-Tour: Laurie and Bob Miccolis’ garden, Skunk Hollow Community Garden (The Willows), Virginia and Bill Gardiner’s garden, Jud Wambold’s bee and butterfly oasis, Catherine Murdock’s garden, Radnor Middle School, and Central Baptist Church.

I wish I had taken pictures of the gorgeous gardens I visited on the Eco-Tour. sigh.

I was late getting over to Skunk Hollow and missed the singing skunk…but I did take a picture of the harmonica-playing squirrel. Also, took this great shot of the goats (and that donkey) near the greenhouse at Radnor Middle School— but I was really looking around for the chickens. Where’d they go, anyway?

(ok, back in my box)

This afternoon at the Library, we gave away the rest of the milkweed that was donated by our friends at Jenkins Arboretum. Everyone who signed up for the Eco-Tour on Saturday went home with a plant. Thanks, Colin, for carting over 90 plants in the trunk of your car. If we see more Monarch butterflies in our neighborhood, we’ll know who to thank.

Wednesday night we screened the first film of the Wild Summer Conservation Film Series. The Lost Bird Project was about a bird-loving artist, memory and extinction. If you missed it, the Library will have this in our DVD circulating collection for you to watch at home. Phil Wallis from Audubon PA was there to talk about the film. Phil also wants everyone to know that Todd McGrain’s 5 sculptures are on loan to The Audubon Society at Mill Grove for the next year…just a short ride to this historic property where you can see them. Then spend the day hiking, canoeing, and learning all about John James Audubon. All 5 sculptures are also at the Smithsonian for the next year if you find yourself in Washington, D.C…

Colin Hingley had more milkweed to give away after the film, reminding us of the urgency to get them planted in our gardens for the Monarchs and pollinators.

See you at our next film on Wednesday, July 30 at 7pm for Vanishing of the Bees.

Have a wild summer!
