Summer 2008 has arrived.

June 22nd was the summer solstice, the longest day of the year.  It is also the day the sun sets furthest to the northwest.  This week begins the regularly scheduled summer nature walks at Allegany State Park.  Programming takes place throughout the day and evening, six days a week.

Where did Spring go?

Park naturalists at Allegany had such a busy spring, with school groups and special events, that no weekend walks were scheduled.  So, what were they doing?  Well there was maple sugaring again this year in March.  The Cattaraugus County Envirothon was held at the park in April, the week after Earth Day.  Girl’s Day fell on May 10th, ASP Geobash III, on May 17th, and the Allegany Nature Pilgrimage on May 30th.  School programs included the Cuba-Rushford Ecology Camp and Conservation Field days in May and Great Outdoor Days on June 6th and 7th.  There were a few school day trips as well.   Our naturalist supervisor of 30 years says spring was never so hectic.  And now–summer’s here!
