Clary Gardens hosts Nature Day By Beth Scott beth@coshoctoncountybeacon.com COSHOCTON – Fourth grade students from Coshocton Elementary had a field trip on Friday, May 19 to Clary Gardens to learn about nature and to get outside and explore. Students participated in a variety of edu- cational sessions throughout the day which included learning water conservation, the importance of recycling, pollinators, expe- riencing crawdads in the stream, looking at pellets of local wildlife, and made a home- made bird feeder. “A lot of it is hands-on experience learn- ing,” said Phil Georig, 4-H program assis- tant. “We’re giving them a chance to be outside and the opportunity to come out and explore.” SEE GARDENS ON PAGE 2 Contributed | Beacon 145 Dover Rd.

Do you have photos that you’re certain were taken in Coshocton County but you just can’t place the spot? Bring them to the discussion for group input. Maybe someone will know just where the picture was taken. If possible, give the image to the museum beforehand, ei- ther by e-mail or by stopping by so the staff can scan them in the computer (Call ahead of time if you plan to stop in during morning hours.) During the discussion, staff will project images for all to see at one time. JHM’s Our Town Stories gather- ing occurs monthly on the second Thursday of the month at noon. The conversation animates “the old days” as we conjure up memories, share personal stories, and recall Coshocton County as it once was. All are welcome to participate, whether you grew up in Coshocton or not. The atmosphere is casual and the discussion is always informative, fun and surprising. Admission for the program is free, and beverages and cookies will be provid- ed. Bring your sandwich and make the most of your lunch break. July’s topic is funeral homes.
