The WWW festival is a fun, family-friendly event designed to bring together members of MMRG, UNHCE and the community to celebrate and learn more about the natural beauty, resources and wildlife of our region. The 2010 festival will include many returning favorite events, such as Hayrides to the Salmon Falls River, Ruth Scranton’s Traveling Barnyard, the Tree Cookie Craft Corner, Canning and Preserving, Worm Holes, The Amazing Maze, Photography and Nature, and the New Hampshire Wildlife Workshop, as well as several exciting new ones: Canoe and Kayak Building, Children Discovering the Forests, Invasive Plant Species, Coyote Wisdom, and Fields, Shrub and Wildlife Habitat.
The York River Ramblers will entertain with toe-tapping music and food and beverages to suit all tastes will be available, including blueberry pies and pedal-powered smoothies from Global Awareness Local Action’s (G.A.L.A.) infamous “Fender Blender”.
The festival is underwritten by the Carl Siemon Family Charitable Trust and by many local businesses. It is free to all business sponsors and employees, to MMRG members, UNHCE staff, and to children 12 and under; all others pay $5 per person.
THANK YOU to all the volunteers who helped pick blueberries last weekend at Darayl Remick’s farm. Be sure to come to the festival for your FREE smoothie as a gesture of appreciation, and a chance to literally taste the fruits of your labor!
