CCCA celebrates ten years and invites public on nature walk

Saturday, May 2 at 6 p.m. — CAVENDISH — The Cavendish Community and Conservation Association is celebrating ten years of service to Cavendish and to commemorate the anniversary the organization will throw a party for the town. On Saturday, May 2 at 6 p.m. at the Proctorsville firehouse the group will host a free pasta dinner for the Cavendish/ Proctorsville community. All residents are invited.

Robin Timko, president of the group, announced that Vermont Secretary of Natural Resources, Deb Markowitz will address the community at the dinner.

The CCCA maintains an active presence in conservation, energy use and the arts through various committees. Activities include the Walk and Talk lecture series, the Summer Concerts on the green, the Cavendish Energy Committee, the Cavendish Community Fund, and the annual Town Meeting preview. “There is always room for more, and we can always use more help and ideas,” said Timko. “But now, let’s celebrate.”

Then, on Sunday, May 3, the CCCA members invite everyone to join in a nature walk at 7:30 a.m. with George Clark of the Audubon Society. He will look for our local feathered neighbors as they settle in for a summer of raising their young and will point out migratory species as they pass through our area.

The walk will begin at Crow’s Bakery on Depot Street in Proctorsville. It will take a few hours and be relatively easy, mostly following back roads but with some side ventures into pastures and fields. Participants should wear comfortable walking shoes and binoculars are a plus, but not necessary.
