Read all about the Festival for the Eno, and the wildlife and ecology of the Eno River in this issue.

All summer long you can beat the heat by going on a family walk in the shady woods at West Point on the Eno and the Eno River State Park. From swinging bridges to water falls, a working historical river mill and serene trails that follow the river, the Eno River State Park has something new to discover each time you visit. The Eno River western trails offer some shorter, easier hikes that are a good start for beginners, and shorter hikes for families with younger children. The Eno River is a great place to relax and enjoy nature, or to get out and explore. Recreational opportunities abound all along the river. To learn more visit www.enoriver.org and www.ncparks.gov/eno-river-state-park In addition to the Festival for the Eno on July 2nd and 4th, local 4th of July festivities also include parades and fireworks. Visit www.ChillKids.com for more 4th of July fun! Summer is a great time to work on your writing and art projects at home. On page 11 read about art contests and a writing contest to help inspire and motivate you. Visit your local library and when you're not outside playing, or playing games with your family and friends, keep up your reading all summer long! Have a jovial July!

COME OUT & PLAY!

37th Annual Festival for the Eno July 2nd & 4th, 2016

Fun for all Ages: Live Music, Crafts & Critters, Eno River Fun, Great Food, & the Historic River Mill all at West Point on the Eno Celebrating its 37th year on July 2nd & July 4th, 2016, the Festival for the Eno River at West Point on the Eno in Durham is a favorite local festival for all ages, featuring food trucks, juried craft show featuring some of the region's finest artists, paddling demos, backyard chickens and bees, and hands-on/feet wet activities, all on the banks of the Eno River. Kids can dig for fossils, watch sand sculptors at work, dance at the Chimney Corner stage, make pottery crafts, cool off at the Rain Tent and go on scavenger hunts. The Festival for the Eno is presented annually by the Eno River Association, and features a variety of activities with an environmental or cultural connection to the river. The Eno River Association is committed to the preservation of the nature, culture, and history of the Eno River basin. Some of the fun you can look forward to at the Festival for the Eno includes: (1) Great live music and dance throughout the Eno River State Park (West Point on the Eno). The 2016 Festival for the Eno will feature over 65 performers on four stages! Fun for all ages! Mia, Avery and Dylan L. investigate and learn about Eno River wildlife at the Festival for the Eno's riverside EEEK! exhibit.

(2) River-splashing fun in the Eno River! When the water is not running too high/fast, festival goers enjoy splashing and wading in the Eno River. Kids-in-the-know come to the Festival wearing “water shoes” and their bathing suits under their clothing. You can also paddle along parts of the Eno in a canoe.

Paddle along the Eno in a canoe! Guide services (with canoe rentals) like Frog Hollow Outdoors make it easy (www.froghollowoutdoors.com).

(3) Searching for River Critters with nets provided by the Festival Staff – and then letting them go back to their Eno River home. (4) Great Festival Food! Prior years’ food vendors have included crêpes, soft ice cream from a classic, retro icecream-cone-shaped booth, hand-squeezed lemonade, funnel cakes and every kind of tantalizing Festival food, including vegetarian fare. (cont. on page 5)

Festival for the Eno July 2nd & 4th, 2016

(5) Visiting Eno River critters at the EEEK! Exhibit (Eno Environmental Education for Kids). Say "Hello" to crawdads (also known as crayfish), tadpoles, frogs, turtles, salamanders, skinks, snakes, and more creatures who are indigenous to the Eno River. Also meet beautiful birds, owls and other creatures at the Piedmont Wildlife Center's teaching booths. (6) Making clay creations at picnic tables in the shade, or throwing a clay pot on a pottery wheel with an expert teacher (free activity). Take a number when you arrive, and kids can make clay creations at the picnic table while waiting for their turn at the pottery wheel(s). You may want to bring a shoe box to with you to the Festival in order to keep your clay creations safe. You can leave your clay sculptures along the fence in the clay/pottery area and pick them up right before you leave the Festival. (7) Collecting Festival for the Eno T-Shirts featuring beautiful art work. When you purchase an Eno T-Shirt your purchase supports the Eno River Association's important conservation work!

(10) Visiting the Handcraft Booths featuring art and handwork by local artists/artisans. (11) Watching the sculpting/creation-in-progress of the amazing giant annual sand sculpture. Kids can also play in the sand and make their own creations while enjoying the live music on the main stage. (12) Playing in the grass or relaxing in the shade. The Festival for the Eno (at West Point on the Eno) has lots of shady tree areas.

(8) Visiting the historic working Eno River Mill, where you can watch wheat and corn being ground into flour inside the Mill, then go outside the Mill and watch the river’s natural power turn the river mill. You can purchase freshly ground wheat flour and corn meal inside the Mill. Sean L. is happy to meet a dove named "Miracle" with the Piedmont Wildlife Center at the Festival for the Eno.

(9) Cooling off in the Rain (Mist) Tent – ahhh! – cool mist! Lots of fun!

Protecting the Eno River The Festival for the Eno is deeply committed to sustainability and environmentally friendly practices. The Festival is put on every year as a benefit for the Eno River Association, in order fund their mission to protect the natural resources of the Eno River and its Watershed for future generations. The Association provides as many educational opportunities as possible to the community about how we can all join them in protecting and preserving the Eno and the environment. The Eno River is a critical water supply for our communities, and its parks attract over a half a million people each year. The river also is home to some of our rarest plants and animals. However, much of the land along its banks is still vulnerable to development. The Festival for the Eno is about having fun and getting you to the river, but it's also serious conservation business. The Festival raises money to buy more land for parks, keep our drinking water clean, and provide a healthy habitat for creatures of all kinds (including you and me). Our community is vibrant and growing, but that puts more pressure on our water supplies and increases the demand for places to get outdoors. Every day, more farms, forests, and wildlife habitats are lost to development. The Eno River Association is responding to these pressures by saving the land most important to drinking water, wildlife, recreation, farming, and forestry. Since its beginnings more than 50 years ago, the Eno River Association has protected [more than 7,002 acres of land in the Eno River Basin through the generosity of donors, the goodwill of its conservation partners, and the interest of conservation-minded landowners.

A group called Sandy Feat creates a massive sand sculpture at the Festival for the Eno year after year. Bringing in hundreds of pounds of sand, the team works on the sculpture as a kind of performing art while festival-goers watch the sculpture emerge.

WHOOO lives at the Eno River?

This is Bellatrix, a rescued great horned owl who lives at the Piedmont Wildlife Center in Durham (www.piedmontwildlifecenter.org.) The Eno River State Park is home to great horned owls, barred owls and many other kinds of birds and animals.

Eno River Ecology

A river ecosystem includes the flowing water, the river bed and the shoreline, the air above the river, and all of the creatures who life in and around the river. Animals are important members of the river ecosystem. They benefit from the river and contribute to its well-being. All of the plants and animals in an ecosystem depend on each other in some way. Even the smallest creatures play an important role in their ecosystem. Every living thing needs a healthy ecosystem. The Eno River State Park and the Eno River flows near urban areas of Durham and Orange counties with five State Park access areas, each just minutes from town. The Eno River’s waters roll past mature forests, historic mill and historic home sites and river bluffs covered with flowering shrubs, and across fords used by early settlers. The Eno River State Park has over 3,900 acres of river-centered forest land, with 16 hiking trails totaling almost 30 miles of trail along the river, as well as places to camp and picnic.

Plants

In spite of urban development nearby, the woodlands of Eno River State Park are a peaceful haven. In the past farming and the timber industry took away much of the forest. Now the ridges, slopes, and flood plains are once again thick with vegetation. Oak, beech, poplar, maple, dogwood, pine, and hickory dominate the uplands. Sycamore, birch, and hornbeam shade the river banks. Mountain laurel, Catawba rhododendron and ferns grow on the slopes and bluffs. Wildflowers bloom in the fields and forest from February through November. Vines such as greenbrier, grape, and trumpet flower are part of the backdrop of natural beauty at the park.

Heron

Animals

Plant communities along the Eno River provide the perfect home for various animals. In the old fields you can find eastern cottontail rabbits and ground hogs. White-tailed deer, raccoons, squirrels, and opossums feed on the fruits and seeds of the hardwood forest. You might even catch a glimpse of a chipmunk, or river otters.

Birds

The birds of the Eno River offer a symphony of music everywhere in the Eno River State park. The calls of the red-tailed hawk, the red-shouldered hawk, barred owl, great horned owl and crows mingle with the melodies of more than one hundred kinds of song birds. Wood ducks, great blue herons, and belted kingfishers thrive around the river. Wild turkeys are often seen in the forest. Beaver are one of the most intriguing animals in the park. This resourceful animal was almost killed off in North Carolina due to excessive trapping but is now back in many parts of the state. They are creatures of the night and seldom seen, but gnawed off stumps and tree trunks are tell-tale signs the beaver has been searching for food. The best times to see a beaver are at dusk or dawn along the river.

Ceres: One big rock! By Michael Gregory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration

Dawn is when the sun rises and a new day begins. You might start thinking about breakfast too! But Dawn

is also the name of an amazing spaceship.

NASA named this spacecraft Dawn because its purpose is to help understand the beginning of the solar system. You know there are eight planets, right? But there are many other objects in our solar system. There are moons and asteroids and sometimes a comet! We also share the solar system with dwarf planets. They’re called dwarf but they are still pretty huge! One of the five dwarf planets that we know about is named Ceres (sounds like ‘series’). It’s the biggest object between Mars and Jupiter. Ceres lives in the main asteroid belt. That’s where millions of rocky objects called asteroids hang out and orbit the sun. No one had ever been to Ceres, so NASA had the idea to go and check it out. That The dwarf planet Ceres as seen from the Dawn spacecraft. The bright area is the inside of a idea became the Dawn spacecraft—making it the very first large crater. Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA/MPS/DLR/IDA spacecraft to visit a dwarf planet. By going to Ceres in 2015 and studying it for a long time (over a year now), we hope that Dawn will teach us something about the history of our solar system. The NASA engineers finished building Dawn in 2007 and launched her into Then we might learn more about the dawn of Earth, where we live! space from Cape Canaveral in Florida. From there, Dawn started flying through space toward Ceres. Ceres is very, very far away—much farther than Mars. Visit NASA's Space Place for kids online: http://spaceplace.nasa.gov http://scijinks.gov http://climatekids.nasa.gov

Dawn was able to get there thanks to her super-efficient engines. They don’t use gasoline or even rocket fuel, they use xenon ions!

What is Energy? Energy is the ability to do work. You use energy to do things like taking your dog for a walk. Electricity is a kind of energy that is made in power plants when they burn some kind of fuel - like coal or oil. Renewable fuel sources (solar, wind, water) are also used to produce electricity. Electricity is what lets us turn on a light or turn on a fan to cool off!

JULY 2016 Flick Picks The Secret Life of Pets

Ice Age 5: Collision Course

In Theaters: July 8, 2016

In Theaters: July 22, 2016

From the humans who brought us Despicable Me, The Secret Life of Pets is a comedy about the lives our pets leave after we leave for work or school each day. Set in a bustling Manhattan apartment building, the real day starts after the folks on two legs leave for work and school. That’s when the pets of every stripe, fur and feather begin their own nine-to-five routine: hanging out with each other, trading humiliating stories about their owners, or auditioning adorable looks to get better snacks. The building’s top dog, Max (voiced by Louis C.K.), a quick-witted terrier rescue who’s convinced he sits at the center of his owner’s universe, finds his pampered life rocked when she brings home Duke (Eric Stonestreet), a sloppy, massive mess of a mongrel with zero interpersonal skills. When this reluctant canine duo finds themselves out on the mean streets of New York, they have to set aside their differences and unite against a fluffy-yet-cunning bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart), who’s building an army of Ex-Pets abandoned by their owners and out to turn the tables on humanity…all before dinnertime. Rated PG. 1 hr. 31 min. (Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment.)

Ice Age: Collision Course is an animated adventure/action family movie starring everyone's favorite Ice Age characters, including Sid, Manny, Diego and all of their friends. In Ice Age: Collision Course, Scrat’s epic pursuit of the elusive acorn catapults him into the universe where he accidentally sets off a series of cosmic events that transform and threaten the Ice Age World. To save themselves, Sid, Manny, Diego, and the rest of the herd must leave their home and embark on a quest full of comedy and adventure, traveling to exotic new lands and encountering a host of colorful new characters. Rated PG for mild rude humor and some action/peril. 1 hr 40 min. (20th Century Fox.)
