VCC’s Kites and Critters event held April 13, 2014 at the Moore farm on Bells Lane was quite successful. Our intent was to offer citizens, especially suburban and urban dwellers and young families, a chance to visit a local farm and see the kinds of conservation practices that can protect water and habitat. The response was extraordinary. Approximately 300 people visited the farm and by all accounts had a wonderful time. The kites helped draw in families, while the setting and the display encourage participants to also learn about conservation. The conservation tour included stream buffers, streambank restoration, and trout release. Many conservation partners participated to design the event and provide educational stations.
