Finding Backyard Treasures

Swanton Local Rob Dick will be at the library at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 30, to share his collection of backyard treasures: underground items he’s found ranging from fossils to arrowheads of other artifacts.

Rob will discuss his methods of unearthing and some history of the various objects he’s found. Participants are invited to bring anything they’ve found ‘beneath the surface’ to share. Registration is requested for the free program.
