Olmsted Me a Garden

To the Posse,

Summer splendor includes epic thunder and lightning storms?  Felt like we should have been rocking on our front porches in Oklahoma as we watched the storm.  I played in the mud, watched termites emerge from the ground and fly away as the birds swooped down and gobbled them up.  Not a bad July at all.


Dusty Socks Club Hike, July 25th, 10:00am

Meet at 10:00AM at the start of the Bayside Trail, by the bronze light house model.

Ranger Amanda Gossard and other Ultra-athletes will be guiding us to get a taste of what makes something Ultra. What exactly is an Ultra-experience? Can you move enough to make it an Ultra-experience? Come out to CNM for our Move and Improve Day and see for yourself. You can even try to keep up, if you want, or just move and improve.

After our event you can stay around and visit the booths to learn about sustainability and healthy living for people and the planet! There are all sorts of special happenings on that day.  Check them out on our website or facebook page.

  1. Hi, Tavio. I could help with VIP Recruitment on August 22. Please let me know if I can be useful to the cause.

    Thanks very much, pal.
