Weekend Nature events around here

As anyone who reads Roundtop Ruminations regularly knows, I rarely post on weekends. That’s when I’m spending as much of my time outside as I can (and when I’m not near a high-speed internet connection). But I’ve decided to try something different, thanks to the magic of scheduled posting. I’m going to post a listing of upcoming nature and outdoor events in southcentral Pennsylvania.

I’ll post whatever I can find, though I know it’s not a comprehensive list. Each week I routinely check out the events at places around my area to see what's going on, and after a mere almost 4 years of blogging, it suddenly occurred to me: why not post these events on Roundtop Ruminations? So that's what I'm going to do.

If you or your organization has something you’d like posted, let me know, and I will add it. For now, let’s just say I’m going to try and post events through the summer.
