Busy weekend for Keeseville residents.
First, Saturday June 7 is Museum Day and the Anderson Falls Heritage Museum will be open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The Museum has an amazing collection of Keeseville history in photographs and actual artifacts and is very much worth a visit. Right now, visitors can enjoy the special Emmitt Pine display and a very cute growing collection of historical toys.
I will be on hand Saturday afternoon as I always have a great time visiting the museum.
Secondly, Saturday is National Trails Day and you can bet Champlain Area Trails will be very active with two hikes and a Celebrate Champlain Area Trails Event.
They are hosting two hikes and their fifth celebration of making new trails in the Champlain Valley. There will be a morning hike at the Cheney Mountain Trail in Moriah and a mid-day hike on the Ancient Oaks Trail in Willsboro.
The Celebrate Champlain Area Trails event takes place from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Barn at Block House Farm in Essex. Emily Boedecker, the Executive Director of Local Motion, a Vermont-based organization that shares CATS’ mission of creating trails that link communities, connect people with nature and promote economic vitality, will speak from 4 to 5 followed by a reception with local food and drink provided by Green Point Foods.
There will be activities for children including a nature hike during the first hour.
Cheney Mountain Trail is on Pelfershire Road, about 1.5 miles west of Rt. 22/9N. Ancient Oaks Trail and Blockhouse farm are on Rte. 22, 2.2 miles and one mile north of the Essex Ferry, respectively. Admission to the Celebrate CATS event is $15 per person, $30 per family with preregistration. At the door, the cost is $20 per person, $40 per family.
