Our first Virtual Celebration of the Great Swamp is now live at: www.frogsfall2020celebration.com
Since 1996 Friends of the Great Swamp has hosted an annual “Celebration of the Great Swamp.” We welcome friends, supporters, members and the community to join us for a weekend of celebrating the beauty, value and benefits of the Great Swamp. Each year the event is full of fun activities for the whole family.
In 2020, we’re proud to celebrate 24 years of the “Celebration of the Great Swamp!”
Given the constraints around indoor gatherings this year, we are excited to try a new approach, and are holding both adult and children’s art shows virtually so that you can enjoy them from the comfort of your home, and also share with family, friends and supporters who live further away.
Our juried art show received a very large amount of submissions this year, and the online show features 125 stunning pieces of art by 46 wonderful artists.
Artwork by local school children is also a huge part of our annual Celebration, and that is no different in 2020, the online gallery features dozens of art works by local art classes.
We are bringing as many of our usual activities as possible to you digitally – there will be online demos for children’s activities that can be recreated at home, and video presentations by some of our expert volunteer naturalists. We also have artwork and other unique items available for sale. T-shirts are available for special donations to FrOGS.
