UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
Volunteers from Sweetbriar Nature Center in Smithtown took to the road last Saturday afternoon in support of the arts.
Program coordinator Veronica Sayers visited the Reboli Center for Art and History in Stony Brook Village to introduce the community to Seven the Barred owl; Stitch the red-tailed hawk; Winter the rabbit; Gary the duck; and a bluejay named Little Blue. The well-attended event was in conjunction with the Reboli’s current exhibit, Wild and Wonderful, by Vicki Sawyer.
