    Hi EveryBODY,

    Lots of fun activities coming up, so check out the calendar for some ideas: weekly events February 3-10.pdf.  If you'd like to join Thursday's Wynn Nature Center outdoor extravaganza and need a ride, call and leave me a message at 299-3244.  I'd be happy to take a few folks up there for the fun.  

    Also, here comes Winter Carnival next weekend, so check out the parade and other carnival delights.  Never a dull moment!

    Howdy EveryBODY,

    Check out this week's calendar for activities that take us into February!  weekly events January 27-February 3.pdf

    Also, NOTE that the TRAILS January 29 bonfire has been postponed till weather has warmed up a bit!  We’re planning a VALENTINE’S DAY bonfire—so mark your calendar for February 14. 

    A couple of FREE special events are worth noting this week at the Pratt Museum:  

    • Thursday evening, 6-7:30 pm--there will be a “Lighted Forest” on the trails behind the Pratt.  The event is sponsored by the Kachemak Bay Running Club, but you don't need to run to enjoy the lights--just stroll the trails--and finish with refreshments at the bonfire.
    • Friday evening, 6-7 pm--With its 50th anniversary coming up, the Pratt Museum is opening its "Curators’ Closet."  Collections staff will highlight some of their favorite things from the closet and share things the community values.

    Happy TRAILS!

    Howdy EveryBODY!

    Things are hopping next week, so have fun looking through the week's calendar!  weekly events January 20-27.pdf

    One highlight is the FREE Thursday showing of the movie Benny and Joon, made possible by South Peninsula Behavioral Health Services.  Another highlight is a delicious way to support Hospice of Homer—the spaghetti feed at the Elks Lodge next Saturday (the 27th)—kids under 8 eat free!  

    Finally, here’s a heads up: TRAILS next bonfire is MONDAY, January 29, when we’ll celebrate the Blue Moon.  More about that in next week’s calendar.

    Happy TRAILS!

    Hi EveryBODY,

    I got so swept up Friday in our first TRAILS Crafts at Captains that I forgot to send out this week's calendar!  So here it is! weekly events January 8-13.pdf

    Crafts at Captains will become a regular TRAILS thing--a very informal time to drop by, say hi, and try out a new skill.  Here's a pic from last Friday--when Barbara Smallwood inspired us to make Dreamcatchers.

    Hi Folks,

    Just wanted to share these photos from the December 27 TRAILS' WILD THINGS celebration, where we made edible ornaments for wildlife.  After making ornaments and hanging them in the woods, we warmed up and roasted marshmallows around a campfire.  These pics are worth a thousand words...

  • Friday, December 29, 2017 12:25 PM | Devony Lehner (Administrator)

    We’ll try to make this a special year by continuing to offer activities that help EveryBODY enjoy healthy happiness and happy health!  We love input, and if you'd like to lead an activity, we're here to help that happen!

    For example, join TRAILS on Friday  (January 5) for our first “Crafts at Captain’s,” where Barbara Smallwood will help us learn how to make dreamcatchers!  TRAILS will supply the basic materials, but bring feathers, beads, shells, yarns, or other special items to decorate your dreamcatcher.

    And check out other fun events on this week's calendar: weekly events December 30-January 6.pdf

    Hi EveryBODY,

    This week's calendar still has lots of fun things happening--you can check it out by clicking here: weekly events December 23-30.pdf.

    And be sure to join TRAILS for a WILD THINGS celebration on Wednesday, December 27th 

    First we'll make edible decorations like those in the photos at left, which are nutritious for local wildlife and can provide a little winter boost for our birds and mammals. 

    Then we’ll decorate Eaglefell Park (next to Devony’s) with our wildlife decorations.  

    And finally we’ll gather around a campfire to roast marshmallows and enjoy the woods.  

    Meet at the ILC parking lot at 1 pm to carpool.

    Call Devony at the ILC, 235-7911, for more information.  Or leave a voice message or text at 299-3244.

    Holiday Greetings, EveryBODY,

    Oh my goodness, there's so much happening this coming week!  For holiday activities, check out events on December 15, 16 (tomorrow, there's TONS of fun stuff), 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, & 23.  Here's your calendar: weekly events December 16-23.pdf

    Actually, the first night of the Garden of Lights and Christmas Music event is tonight, at Bear Creek Winery.  As I mentioned in an earlier email, let me know right away if you want to go to the Garden of Lights NEXT Friday (December 22) from 5 to 7 pm.  I'll arrange transportation from ILC to Bear Creek Winery and back for as many folks as I can.  (Email me at or call or text me at 299-3244.)

    And if you’re curious about the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count, that event is happening tomorrow (Saturday, December 16).  If you want to see what the bird count is all about, meet up at Islands and Ocean at 8:30 am tomorrow, and you'll join a group that will be looking and listening for birds at designated locations.  At 4:30, all groups will get back together at I&O to share results and hot soup.  It’s quite an adventure!

    Phew!  I'm worn out just CONSIDERING all the things happening this week!  So have fun!  And be happy that days will soon be getting longer!  YAY!!
