Did you know it is the International Year of the Salmon? It’s about time these extraordinary fish got their own year. Help celebrate by visiting the trail along the river at Volunteers Green during the month of September and appreciating the colorful salmon-shaped windsocks that are hanging along the full length of the trail. Besides their beautiful painted designs, each windsock features an original poem inspired by salmon, fish, rivers or nature in general. Windsocks and poems were created over the summer by area youth participating in workshops hosted jointly by the library and Radiate Art and sponsored by RiseVt. They will be on display along the river trail and at the library through October 5 when the Lake Champlain Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office will be hosting a salmon festival at the Volunteers Green and at the library.
