Good fact to know: Our Pine Bush is one of just 20 inland pine
barrens in the world.
Dr.Fiero and his students at Farnsworth Middle School in Guilderland
are in the news again. Students raised $409.75 from bake sales
and bottle drives to benefit the Karner Blues. The next school
project is to raise Karner Blues to repopulate the more than
100 acres that have been restored to high quality Karner Blue
habitat. What a worthy project!
