You know we're going to need these (VHC) in grown up sizes for crazy sock days at school!

Do any stores sell these wonderful socks, or do they have to be ordered?

Rosie Revere and The Magnificent Thing are favorites in our house. We also love Papa's Mechanical Fish. "It almost worked!"

Many of Keats' books fit this, including Pet Show and Peter's Chair.

Nearly a month ago, Historic Northampton and Paradise City Dragon Boat co-hosted a natural history paddle. We began at the Community Rowing facility, which is located along the horseshoe bend in the river and next to the end of the Northampton-New Haven Canal (1835-1847). From there, our two boats paddled upriver to the boundary with Hatfield. This is one of the most fascinating stretches of the Connecticut River in Northampton--geologically, ecologically and culturally. 

As we paddled back, we had an added bonus: an adult bald eagle cruised down river, landed on a nearby tree and remained perched while our boats floated past. Very cool!

Historic Northampton

Although European honeybees usually get most of the media attention, in this outdoor, interactive program, local wild bee expert Fred Morrison will provide an introduction to some of the 400+ species of lesser-known wild bees that are found in Massachusetts. In addition to sharing useful identification techniques, Fred will describe some of their fascinating life histories and point out some of the non-native bee species that were not found in Northampton when the first English settlers arrived.

Fred Morrison has been studying native bees for nearly ten years and is part of the small research team that is surveying the state to develop a list of all of the bee species currently found in Massachusetts. A former Northampton science teacher, Fred has identified more than 100 species of bees in Northampton.

$10 for members; $15 for non-members
