Bogtoberfest 2016

The 2016 Bogtoberfest really rocked with The Paul Clark Party Band. Music and conversation made for a fun filled evening.

Cranberry Bog Cleanup 2016

It was a cool and windy April day when the cleanup crew arrived at the bog. Volunteers, called "Bog Buddies," keep the marsh healthy year around.

Chain saws cutting down trees, weedwhacking, pulling noxious weeds and tending to the Prothonotary Warbler nests, are typical chores. 
"You" are invited to join in, call J-me: 740-929-1998. 

Thank you Susan, Al,  J-me, Mary and Brenda... ​

Wander Through the Orchard

The opportunity of a lifetime is happening on Buckeye Lake on July 31, 2014, for those that would like to visit three private homes on Orchard Island. The Douglass Family of Columbus has resided on the island for 18 years and restored two of the three cottages to their original state.
