Helmer Maple Events Cancelled

Friends of the Nature Center:

Here at Helmer, we have been busy preparing for our Maple Events, with a wary eye to developments regarding the coronavirus, COVID-19.  Concerns about the possible health implications for our attendees and our volunteers have been constantly on the top of our mind.  Yesterday, our deliberations ended with the latest guidance from our school district.   As of March 12th all large, school-sponsored public gatherings are cancelled.   This includes the CANCELLATION of both our Maple Sugar Open House (March 21st) and our Pancake Breakfast (March 29th).  

I find that I am both disappointed that we can't share these events with the public this year and relieved that steps are being taken to keep our friends and neighbors safe.  If we are able to reschedule any events we will be sure to let you know as soon as possible.

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.  Stay well!
