Enhancing Falls Road: A Community Discussion on Traffic Calming and Placemaking 

Wednesday, June 26: 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm 

Join us for an informative presentation on traffic calming, pedestrian safety, and placemaking along Falls Road. The Falls Road Working Group is gearing up for a temporary traffic calming demonstration project that includes pedestrian improvements, vehicle speed reduction strategies, and other enhancements to our public spaces. These efforts aim to create a vibrant and inviting area between Route 7 and Church Street. Mark your calendars to learn about the project and share your vision for Falls Road! 


Choose Your Own Adventure Writing Group

Wednesday, June 26: 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This group is for writers fresh and seasoned alike, to gather for the creative collaboration of a Choose Your Own Adventure style book to be distributed by the end of this year’s Summer Reading Program (8/17). We will borrow the story map of Edward Packer’s Cave of Time for our structure. In this first meeting, we’ll do some ice breakers, writing warm-ups, decide on a premise, and assign pages.


Adventures in Nature: Early Morning Bird Walk

Saturday, June 29: 7:00 am - 9:00 am 

Join local Audubon member Lucie Lehman and other birders for an awesome hike through the village and into LaPlatte Nature Park to see what birds we can spy. Gather at 7 AM in front of the Pierson Library for coffee and donuts and then we’re off! Limited binoculars will be available, so bring your own if you’ve got them. Please note – we will be accessing LaPlatt from behind the Shelburne Market, so expect a steep decline/incline and uneven terrain.
