Kites & Critters 2016

In conjunction with this year's Earth Day activities in Staunton, the "Kites and Critters" event was held Sunday, April 17th at the Moore Farm on Bell's Lane. Once again, the weather was very cooperative. As usual, there were a variety of displays and guided tours centered on the main theme of environmentally-conscious landscaping and natural conservation in general. Darrell Schwalm was in charge of the Augusta Bird Club display, shown below.
