Crouse Run Nature Reserve to Reopen

    On Saturday, July 14th, Pine Creek Land Conservation Trust (PCLCT) will be celebrating the reopening of the Crouse Run Nature Reserve.  The walking trail in Hampton Township had been closed due to work on stream bank remediation and trail improvements and extensions.  Trail improvements include three bog bridges, block stairs, and a new entry.  
    On July 14th, to mark the reopening, PCLCT will be providing nature walks, activities for children including stream dipping, and light refreshments.  Also, there will be a raffle with chances to win a Penguin Encounter at the National Aviary, a garden consultation, and native plants and trees.
    The location is in the gravel parking lot off Wildwood Road (by the now closed Tuscan Inn).  The program will run from 10 am to noon. If you have questions, please contact the PCLCT at pclctrust@gmail.com or Liz Spence at 412-487-1798.

Depreciation Lands Museum Happenings

Welcome to Midsummer in Talley Cavey !
 -- We are open Every Sunday, 1-4 pm --
   
Join us for the annual ICE CREAM SOCIAL and celebrate with us 45 years of Bringing History to Life!
--- Sunday, July 15, 1-4 pm     **FREE Ice Cream and cake**

 We have come a long way since those first wonderful, hardworking folks had a vision, and joined with Hampton Township to purchase a piece of land with an original Covenanter Church (c 1837) and cemetery, to today's working late 18th century settlement. A huge thank you to our founders!
 And a huge thank you to YOU, who have supported this all-volunteer  Museum for these many years.
 
 Features during the afternoon:
    --  the Fleece to Shawl demonstration:  watch as the Spinners and Weavers spin yarn from a wool sheep fleece, and weave it into a lovely woolen shawl in just one afternoon!
    --  At 2:30pm, please join us in the Tavern for a musical concert presented by the Wayward Companions and the orchestra of the Pittsburgh Historical Music association.
    --  Check out the photo display documenting 45 years of progress in our re-created Talley Cavey, located in the Covenanter Building.
    --  Throughout the grounds you will find the residents of Talley Cavey engaged in their daily activities, working iron in the Blacksmith shop, teaching school, cooking a meal at the open hearth, and more.
    --  Children will find plenty of activities, including learning to card wool, playing period games and attending school.
    --  And of course, there is the Ice Cream and Cake!!
 
 See you at the Ice Cream Social!
 Admission:  $5/adult, $3/children ages 2-11, Free to DLMA members
