National TV Turnoff Week

Does your family spend every evening in front of the television? National TV Turnoff Week is the perfect time for our families to enjoy other pastimes together: get out a board game, make a craft, go for a walk, play a sport, volunteer, take advantage of this week's activities at school, put together a puzzle, or - my favorite, of course - visit your library!

Purple Martins Majesty

I hope you're planning on joining us at 7 p.m. this Thursday, April 7th, for Rick Marx's program on attracting and managing Purple Martins. Mr. Marx, a senior environmental engineer with the law firm Nixon Peabody, LLP, will present a PowerPoint presentation and lecture on these unusual birds who stopover in our area twice a year. Birding has been a lifelong passion of Marx's, taking him on bird-watching trips throughout North America, Mexico, Great Britain, Brazil, and Bolivia. We're excited to be able to offer his presentation to our community, and are grateful to the Genesee Land Trust for their sponsorship and to Margaret Potter for her efforts in planning and coordinating the program.
