Please help wildlife by staying a safe distance!

[AMHERST POLICE, NY] -- Every year hundreds of healthy fawn are taken into captivity by well meaning people that just don’t know any better.

A fawn lying alone, such as the one below does not need help. Mother deer “park” their babies out in the open to keep them safe from predators such as foxes.

Finding a fawn alone is perfectly normal.

For the Explorers camp- do you know what the weekly themes will be? My son wants to know which weeks he would like best before we sign him up. Thank you.
When will the summer program schedule be available? Looking forward to seeing about swimming lessons.
I just noticed the Clearfield splash pad is gone?! Please tell me this isn't permanent! My kids will be heartbroken. What happened to it?!
