What’s Going On – September 21-26.

It’s a great time of year for bird watching as raptors migrate and other birds enjoy the temperate weather! Here’s a picture of a hawk – not sure if this is the type that you can see soaring over the trees these days, but you can always stop by the Library to pick up a bird identification book to help you figure it out! Meanwhile, join us for some fun online events this week! And our October events are mostly* online – lots to enjoy this fall.
