PENFIELD – Officials at the Parker Dam State Park have announced the program schedule for June 13-15.
Friday, June 13
Frog Lullaby, 9 p.m. – Pavilion 4
It’s almost bedtime, but only for some. Come on a frog search as we learn about different species that can be found here at the park, along with their various characteristics; including songs, diet, and amazing adaptations. Frog stalking is fun for the whole family!
Saturday, June 14
2 p.m. – Beach House steps
Come share your favorite frog or toad story and learn about others’ experiences with these amphibians. We will also share some natural history for these critters so that they can be more appreciated when you see them next.
Race Against Time
8:30 p.m. – Campground Amphitheater
The specialized habitat of a vernal pool is required by some species. Without these seasonal ponds, we would no longer find some of the animal species we are familiar with. Learn more about these vernal aquatic habitats and what can be done to help protect them.
Sunday, June 15
Tea and Talk
7 p.m. – Beach House
The talk will be teas, and a few trees, and perhaps more. Bring your own mug for some of the park-grown Sweet Fern tea, and then relax and have an informal discussion with park naturalist Eric Rensel (who is back working at the park again) about a few trees – in particular Hemlock and Ash.
