  • Earth Week Highlights

    | April 25, 2014

    Music, fun, education, & stewardship converged during April school vacation week at the Reserve! Roughly 150 people celebrated Earth Day with us on Tuesday, families learned lots from whale enthusiast Tony Viehmann on Wednesday, and an excited group of day campers explored vernal pools on Thursday.

    Lisa Judd came with her kids on Earth Day and had this to say:

    The Earth Day function was fantastic! The kids had a great time with all the activities and walked through every tide pool on the beach. They ended the day soaked and smiling! Perfect!

    Lots more programming for children, families, and adults is on the horizon for the spring and summer!

  • Reserve dedicates Forest Learning Shelter

    Wells Reserve Contributor | April 22, 2006

    Visitors to the Wells Reserve at Laudholm Farm paraded down the Saw-whet Owl Trail, in cadence to folk-bluegrass music, to celebrate the dedication of the new Forest Learning Shelter and Interpretive Trail. Some visitors stood, while others rested on tree stump seats, as Don Somers, Paul Dest, and Sherry Huber spoke of the mission of the Forest Learning Shelter and the importance of educating people to be stewards and good users of the forest.
