The 300 Committee
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, T3C!
We are celebrating our 30th Anniversary all year long!
Watch our fabulous new video, produced by Falmouth's own Brian Switzer!
A Picnic in the Park
WHEN: Monday, October 12, 12 to 2 pm NEW DATE!
WHERE: Teaticket Park!
Come help us celebrate the completion of Phase 2 and the launch of Phase 3 of the Park...with the newly installed picnic grove and the extension of the accessible elements--pathways, boardwalk and wetland observation platform. Fun activities for families will include a scavenger hunt and entertainment by ventriloquist Harold Crocker.
Bring your own picnic, or purchase a hot dog meal at celebratory prices (including a hot dog, chips, drink and dessert) from The Doggz and Hoggz food truck.
Parking will be available at the Park on a first-come, first-serve basis. If the lot fills, extra parking will be available at the School Administration building (340 Teaticket Hwy.). From there, it is just a short walk to the Park.
Everyone is welcome. We look forward to seeing you!

Identifying Plants throughout the Year
at Sea Farms Marsh*
Wednesday, October 14
(last one: December 2)
10:00 to noon
How does a tree's bark, buds, leaves help with identification? how about the understory? What's evergreen and what's not? What color bberries go with what plant? What are MAD VIBS? Who are Alice and Freddie?!?
Let's figure this all our together. Join Alex Lancaster (508-540-4619) in identifying vegetation in this area and returning again and again to watch the growth and change that take place.
Access to Sea Farms is from Gayle Ave., off Davisville Road in East Falmouth.
