New Film: The Forgotten Slavery of Our Ancestors


If your present situation isn't exactly the best for going off on adventures, there are ways to get some air while having a bit of fun.

Sidewalk chalk painting is fun and not only for kids. Plus, cleaning up is easy, just hose it down or let rain do the work!

Poplar fluff is one of those things that just makes you wonder about nature and its ways. The fluff falls and blows away from the poplars right before the summer and covers the surrounding area. This spreads poplar seeds for new growth and looks magnificently strange.

BTW, poplar fluff ...does not aggravate pollen allergies, it just shows up at the same time as other pollen does! Many cities stopped planting female poplars to avoid the fluff, but in some places it's still a yearly phenomenon. Also, did you know it is highly flammable?

Camping involves gear in order to be comfortable.
Here's a simple checklist that fits anyone. But there are many other things that are specific to each person or style of camping.
Always check online to see what type of gear you'll need for the camping you are planning to do.
...Consider things like:
- The weather
- The location
- Distance from urban or suburban areas
- Altitude
- Length of stay
- Will you be hiking?
- Will you make camp once or at various times in different places?
Being prepared is essential to having a great camping experience!

Have y'all or your kids ever tried rock climbing? If you've never done it in the wild, it'd be easier to start at an indoor rock climbing space.
