With two sites now, there is something most weekends, and a few week day events. I hope the weather cooperates for our three volunteer hikes that allow us to get out and stretch our legs. Tomorrow may be dicey though, if it decides to snow.

As for events, I am particularly interested in seeing Ned Tillman’s event out at Belmont.

See you out there, I hope.

About AnnieRie

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.

  1. Hi Annie Rie, I love your local focus with your blog. Such a delight. Hey, would you do me the kindness of letting these orgs with which you’re associated know about, Howard County’s new online calendar? It’s FREE to post an event and pretty easy to do so. There’s also a $5/event posting service from ScottESoftware. Deets here
