The Pike County Public Library will host an art and nature workshop in both the Milford and Dingman Township branches this spring.

Thanks to a grant from the Greater Pike Community Foundation Richard L. Snyder Fund, the library will host two workshops in each location. Each will include a presentation from an educator from the Delaware Water Gap Recreational Area on local nature, followed by instruction from a Delaware Valley School District art teacher.

“This gives us an opportunity to work the National Park Service and local art teachers to bring something unique to our patrons,” says library director Rose Chiocchi. "We are very thankful to the Greater Pike Community Foundation for giving us this opportunity."

This event is free for participants who will get to take their artwork home with them or allow the library to display it in their exhibition spaces. It is meant for anyone aged 16 and up with any level of artistic ability.

● The first workshop will cover fossils on March 18 in Milford, at 6:30 p.m.; and March 31 in Dingman Township, at 6 p.m.

● The second workshop will cover spring flowers and animals on April 2 in Milford, at 6 p.m.; and April 16 in Dingman Township, at 6 p.m.

Space is limited and registration is required for the workshops. Call the appropriate branch to register: Milford at 570-296-8211, or Dingman Township at 570-686-7045.
