Did you know caffeine is a natural pesticide?! The used coffee grounds from your morning cup of joe also make for great fertilizer!

Fun Fact Friday: Caffeine is a natural pesticide!
Caffeine—which is found in tea leaves, guarana berries, kola nuts, and, of course, coffee beans—acts as a natural pesticide. It overloads the nervous systems of insects that try to eat the plants containing caffeine, paralyzing and even killing them before they can do too much damage. It affects humans' central nervous systems, too, but for us, it merely acts as a stimulant.

Welcome to the 2020 virtual American Indian Festival! We invite you to join us virtually throughout your day with your phone, tablet, or computer for engaging experiences featuring guest historians, musicians, artists, and storytellers. Our first program will be published here at 1pm.

Accessing the Festival: Scroll through and share our events (listed in our events section)! The links to watch the presentations will be published at the event's scheduled time both inside the event listing and as a post to our page.

The About the Festival: The annual American Indian Festival began in 2009. It is usually held in person each year on the 3rd Saturday of October. The live festival offers a Native culture immersion experience. While COVID-19 prevented hosting a live festival this year, we continue to acknowledge the importance of the rich and diverse Native American Indian cultures and heritage. We are sharing a portion of the presentations that would have been experienced in person.

Thank you for joining us! We hope you enjoy.

Tag along with us on virtual field trip with Park Naturalist Greg Kearns and his interns as we learn about the amazing work they are doing with Sora Rails (local migratory bird). #sustainability

Let’s take a virtual fieldtrip to Patuxent River Park to learn about how one species can drive a whole ecosystem! In this case it’s Wild Rice. The conservation efforts that staff and volunteers have been doing with Wild Rice restoration over the last 20+ years in the Jug Bay Natural Area, has been credited with positively impacting the Sora Rail population in the area.
Let’s tag along with Park Naturalist Greg Kearns and his interns as we learn about the amazing work they are doing with Sora Rails. In particular, how they are tracking Sora Rail migration and how their research is being used to develop an external sexing technique for this secretive bird.

Our 4yo loved your programs before. Are you considering how to have programs once the state reopens? Could you offer a social distance soccer ball handling class, for example, where parents try to help young children remain 6 feet from the child to the left and right, bring their own soccer ball and get some exercise and follow coach's instructions in a safe way? Just thinking about the future.

Can we please get some more speed bumps on the road going up the hill and the new road to the new parking lot in Colmar Manor Park? People have been drag racing from the first soccer field, up the hill down and down the new road (when the gate is open). Also, as I have suggested many time can we please have some barriers to prevent truck and cars from driving on the wooded trails. I have seen multiple people joy ride in the woods and now people dumping waste. We spent 100's of thousands of tax dollars on the the road and parking lot that were not needed we can certainly spend a few hundred on speed bumps and tasteful barriers to prevent someone from getting hurt and the park become a dump again. Thank you
Thank you for keeping us updated and getting us active in our area!!!
