Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team Update


Looks like we have wrapped up the field work for this year”s batch of vernal pond certifications. I think we will end up with 20, or so, applications. This year’s swampers were Nick Taomina, Matt Burne and me, with assistance from Matt Natti, Sheila Wilson, Herb Stillman, Dan Wells and Nick Holland.

The big office move is scheduled for this month:
We (CAVPT and Kestrel) are moving our office from 15 Lexington Ave. in Magnolia to Main St. Gloucester in Brown’s Mall right across from the police station. The plan is to do this on Saturday, May 17th. We will need help with this. If you have a truck or a van, we could use that too.

Start gathering your donations for the Big Giant Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team/Kestrel Educational Adventures Yard Sale.
Saturday May 24, 2014, 9am-1pm. St. Peter’s Square, Gloucester
Bring your donations to St. Peter’s Square at 7am on the morning of the sale. No TVs or computers please. We will need some volunteers to work at the sale too.

Next show:
Sunday May 18, 2014 2-3pm
Snakes of New England and the World- one hour live animal presentation.
The barn at Castle Hill on the Crane Estate, Ipswich MA
Guess what?… We’ll need volunteers.

And… here’s something:
As a result of the recent article in the Boston Globe Sunday Magazine, ‘Two Rick Roths Walk Into A Bar…’, Rick Roth and I have been invited to be on WGBH, Boston Public Radio on Friday May 16th from 1:35-2pm. Tune in and hear me make a fool out of myself in a new medium.

Later, Rick

we only have one earth, save it

BREAKING NEWS: We just released a few excellent seats for tonight’s John Sebastian Concert

Once in a while it just happens.  Seats that were sold or held for the band get released on the day of the show.  Well, that just happened for tonight’s John Sebastian concert at The Larcom Theatre down the road in Beverly.  We figure FOBs should have first crack at snatching them up before they’re gone.  Get them here.  They won’t last very long.

Were you at Woodstock?  Wish you’d been there?  Come see John Sebastian tonight and ask him what THIS was like (watch video if you want to know what I’m talking about)
