Wendy Hall organized Adirondack Habitat Awareness Day to celebrate the beauty of Wilmington, and to inaugurate the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge & Rehabilitation center.  The weather cooperated, and a fine time was had by all, walking the wildlife refuge nature trail, socializing and listening to the presentations. Beth Bidwell, of the Wildlife Institute of Eastern New York, fascinated the guests, with a colorful and informative  presentation of Adirondacks birds of prey and other local wildlife. Darrell Austen of Tri-Lakes  landscaping, discussed responsible forestry, and how to propogate and care for trees. Rarilee Conway, New York State Director for Personal Ponies, a not-for-profit charitable organization, brought two of her ponies with her, to the delight of the kids. Alex Hall tussled and posed with Cree the wolf-hybrid. Michele Buck and Jessie Kenyon photographed the event. Wendy plans a second program for the Fall, involving the Adirondack Loon Program.
