Hear the tales. Eat the bugs: Meet Entomophagist, David Gracer:

OUTSIDE! Gracer, an entomophagy (bug eating) expert gives a pretty good case for making a wider use of bugs. He’s eating them to save the planet, not to make a buck. Listen to his humorous but thoughtful ideas. And eat a bug while you're at it. Or, not! Have a bug you'd like identified? Take a picture and ask Dave! Or bring it! We won't eat it. We promise. You can check out his website, here, for more information on Gracer.  FOR GRADES 6 thru 12. Get a virtual raffle ticket for coming!

Sounds & Skewers with Emmett and Will: Take Two!

Listen to local jazz musicians Emmett Van Leer and Will Medeiros play as a piano and sax duo at the gazebo.  The two high school-aged musicians have played across the state many times throughout the past couple years in styles ranging from funk fusion, to swing, to the more avant-garde.  Snacks on skewers will be served.  Please register!  Social distancing will be in place and masks must be worn when necessary.
