Attention Herald Calendar users, we will be transitioning to a new platform for our online Calendar this month to better serve both the readers and those who submit events. During this transition time, users may experience a service interruption. We expect this interruption to be brief and appreciate your patience as we bring the new service online. Please direct specific concerns or questions to Editor in Chief John Anastasi at

Barn Nature Center Summer Camp


Barn Nature Center Summer Camps offer youth the chance to get up close and personal with our over 60 rescued and re-homed animal residents. During our week-long programs, campers will embark on adventures filled with animals, science, games, arts and crafts and many other fun activities! Campers have the opportunity to become animal caretakers and will learn what it takes to keep our animal friends happy and healthy. They will assist our staff in the daily animal care, bathing, grooming, weighing, handling, and designing enrichment for our animals. We'll play interactive and educational games, work together to complete team building challenges, and even learn how to be an animal educator!
