CES Animal Projects at Herrick’s Cove

By Cadance James

Have you ever attended the Wildlife Festival at Herrick’s Cove?  The Herrick’s Cove Festival takes place every year on the first Sunday in May.  This year the festival will be on May 6, 2018, from 10:00 am to 4 pm. Herrick’s Cove is located off Route 5, less than three miles north of Bellows Falls.


Be sure to attend this year, because CES fourth graders will be presenting their fabulous animal projects.  Also, museum staff, members and community members will be there to teach people about animals in our area. There will be live animals such as owls, wolves, turtles and snakes.  This gives a chance for people to experience these animals in real life, and even perhaps you will have a chance to hold one of them! There are nature trails to hike, opportunities to watch demonstrations, and to attend workshops at this festival  too. Come join in the fun and see all the hard work the CES fourth grades have been doing!
