The White Memorial Conservation Center held its 37th annual Family Nature Day on Saturday.

An afternoon of activities and programs drew a large crowd interested in learning about the importance of nature. Many of the exhibitors returned for another year, incuding honey-bee demonstrators John Baker of Litchfield and Dexter Kinsella of Goshen.

Family Nature Day is a fundraiser benefiting the White Memorial museum and its educational programs.

John Baker of Litchfield brought his honey bee display.
