The bog turtle is the smallest turtle in North America. They spend a good deal of their time hidden under mud, and like to come out at night.

Bog turtles are usually dark brown, both skin and shell, and have a unique bright orange spot on each side of their neck. Sadly, these turtles are considered threatened, and protected under the United States' Endangered Species Act.

At this workshop we’ll be sculpting these elusive beautiful little creatures.

Please join us and make your very own, very special bog turtle.

Age: 6 & up.

Material Fee: $5.00.

    If a tree had a face, what would it look like?

    Each tree has its own personality, strength, beauty, and wisdom.

    It stands tall and gives us shade and air to breathe.

    When the wind blows through its leaves, we can hear it speak.

    Trees have much to say and can grow to be very old: the oldest living forms of life in our world.

    At this workshop we will be giving a face to a tree.

    Each tree face sculpture will be photographed together with the tree that inspired you.

    These photographs will be displayed on the Pawling Library’s Instagram account.

    If a tree had a face, what would it look like?

    Look and listen, and the tree will speak to you, and you will know.

    Please join us.
