Crane Folding Party

Storyteller, Zette Harbour visited Children’s House on Thursday, August 9. She taught all in attendance, how to fold an origami paper crane. All the cranes we made will be used in a 1,000 Crane Peace Sculpture. “This sculpture is intended to be the expression of many individuals’ desire for a world that manifests Peace, and to begin the conversation about what a Peace-full world looks like. The sculpture will be unveiled at the Peace Love Story Fest, in Cambria on Sept. 16, then featured at several public locations throughout the week of September 16 - 21, in preparation for the International Day of Peace. This will create an opportunity for dialogue about the nature of Peace and the need for a strong Peace Story for our world. The cranes will be folded by community members involving as many people as possible in the creation of the Peace sculpture. Your crane, your name, and, your manifest intention for Peace in your world can be a part of this exciting celebration.”

Osprey Cam

Watch live streaming video from hellgateosprey at livestream.com


I’ve been watching this amazing nestcam of an osprey family in Missoula, Montana, for the past two months. Okay, yes, it is a bit of an obsession, but honestly, it is a nice thing to do when the temp outside is 106. I’ve shared it with some of the children enrolled in our summer camps and they have really enjoyed watching whenever they pass by my computer. The webcam was set up as part of a study about osprey and the environmental factors they face. You can learn all about the Osprey Project on their Facebook page.

The eggs were laid in May and hatched in June. The mom is Iris and the dad is Stanley. The babies are Crown Royal (73), Captain Hook (72) and Squish (71). The babies are getting ready to leave the nest very soon...possibly two or three weeks? ~Dana
