Briefly

Historical Society Meeting Saturday

Members of the Allegany State Park Historical Society welcome the public to their next monthly meeting on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the conference room in the Quaker Lake Bathhouse. After a brief business meeting, guest speaker Jay Whopperer will lead a short “nature walk” from the Bathhouse building, along the edge of the tree line, down to the beach and to the edge of the lake. Along the way, he will talk about various species of birds, trees, plants and wildlife. He will even make attempts in calling out for owls, although it will be daytime and very few owls are out in the daylight; but, it is not unheard of. He is also heavily involved with the Sierra Club, the Adirondack Mountain Club, and the Allegany Nature Pilgrimage.
