Little Photographer

It's all about the angle and learning to frame your subject. My niece is learning that as she tries her hand at digital photography.

A reflection is worth a thousand words...

ZooParent Night

Being a ZooParent is a great opportunity to help the zoo and give someone the chance to support their favorite animal. The Seneca Park Zoo celebrates ZooParents and their animals with an evening of fun, food and crafts.

This year's attraction was the new baby Amur Tiger cubs. At 4 mos. old they are keeping their Mom pretty busy!
You can help! Become a ZooParent and provide the best for one - or more - of our animals. Adopt a "wild child."

Labor Day Fireworks

Fireworks Extravaganza at the Genesee Country Village is always a family favorite on Labor Day weekend. There are plenty of things to do from the games on the big meadow, to the auction and let's not forget the picnic.

At the end of the evening the celebration concludes with a show of spectacular aerial displays, music, specially designed set pieces and narration. This year's theme was Travel America.

For more information about the museum and it's activities you can go to http://www.gcv.org/.

Trip to NYC - Ground Zero Site

September 2005

Four years later, and the site of the World Trade Center Towers still finds New Yorkers and tourists alike stopping to read the names and recognize the importance of this space.

The struggle of today, is not altogether for today - it is for a vast future also. With a reliance on Providence, all the more firm and earnest, let us proceed in the great task which events have devolved upon us.
- Abraham Lincoln
