No-Fuss Wildlife Ponds
ADULT
No-Fuss Wildlife Ponds
Frogs, toads, and dragonflies all need freshwater ponds for egg laying to create future generations. Even a tiny pond will attract and support them. Learn what a true wildlife pond is and how simple it is to create – with no need for running water, filters, fish, and all the fuss. Pat Sutton, long-time wildlife gardener, will share the basics of how to create a wildlife pond and, even more importantly, how to maintain it so that wildlife benefits.

Non-Silent Nosferatu
ADULT
Non-Silent Nosferatu
The Center For Community Arts, The Cape May Film Society, and The Stone Harbor Library have teamed up to present the classic 1922 film “Nosferatu” (The non-silent version). Hear what you’ve been missing from the first and creepiest vampire film of all time. All characters on screen to be voiced live by the wonderful group of actors “The Clio Project”. Enjoy the original dialogue being spoken, plus improvised comic filled comments inserted by the actors in between, all done with a very low brow approach. We’ll even have Amy Hufana on organ recreating those cheesy organ sounds that are heard in silent films. So please join us for this less than reverent version of the film. It’s all about fun and getting in the spirit of it with us. The spoken word comes to the silent screen giving voice to the vampire.

Date: July 2
Time: 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Location: Stone Harbor Library
Registration is required.
