Save the Date: Saturday, May 7, 10 a.m.

We are still working out the details, but we invite everyone to please attend a dedication ceremony for the Celery Farm's new wood duck nesting boxes and plaque, donated by Gerhard Haas in memory of his wife Rita.

Dr. Haas was gracious enough to donate money for the wood duck boxes, now and in the future, and we would like to express our thanks on Saturday, May 7, at 10 a.m. at the kiosk adjacent to in the Celery Farm parking lot on the Franklin Turnpike.

(By the way, I will be leading a free Celery Farm walk at 8 that morning, and I could sure use some help.)

Stay tuned for more information.
