Do you hear that? 🔈 Sandhill Cranes are starting their northbound migration (and that means spring is coming!!). You’re more likely to hear their calls before you see them high in the sky, so be listening!
This was our first year enrolling a child in summer camp and I couldn't be more impressed! I appreciate the value in what we paid and what our child got out of camp.

Camps are filling quickly, so secure your kiddo's spot today. Register via the link in our bio!⠀ ⠀ #CarmelSummerCamps

During Extended School Enrichment we celebrate our kiddos' success with RICHER Right-Ups. A Right-Up winner is recognized because they've demonstrated a RICHER Principle: Respect, integrity, caring, harmony, excellence or responsibility. Tonight they were rewarded with tickets to a Pacers game! Swipe to see a few of our Right-Up winners! Emerson is a kindergartener who is always so kind and caring to others. Nearly all of her RICHER Right Ups are related to acts of kindness, whether it is giving up her swing so others can have a turn or cleaning up in the cafeteria. Anna is a fifth-grader who is always willing to help out and loves to be creative! The majority of her RICHER Right Ups are related to helping out others, whether assisting kindergarten students or help lead a club! Faith is a fifth-grader. She is a great role model for our younger students and enjoys helping out during our Kindergarten homework time. Faith demonstrates our RICHER principles every day and is always showing respect to ESE counselors and friends. Luke is a fourth-grader. Luke is a wonderful example of having a positive attitude. He is always smiling and showing kindness to his peers and ESE counselors. He is a wonderful role model for our students and is always willing to help out when he has the chance.
Our parks are getting some new residents! Thanks to the Mumford and Keller Grant from the Indiana Audubon Society, we have built and installed 22 new nest boxes across Central, Founders and Inlow Parks. ⠀ ⠀ These boxes will provide important nesting habitat for cavity-nesting birds, primarily for Eastern bluebirds. Other native cavity nesters like Tree swallows and House wrens may also call these boxes home.⠀ ⠀ These boxes were built by our citizen science volunteer Charlie and installed with the help of citizen science volunteer Jim!
MCC member Tiffany B. loves the variety of group fitness classes we offer. In fact, she often takes two a day 💪⠀ ⠀ The classes are motivating and the instructors are knowledgeable and inspiring. I love that I can mix up my classes to include strength, cardio and even some flexibility here and there.⠀ ⠀ #OnePriceOnePlaceAllAccess
Did you know that 25% of Indiana's land used to be wetlands? Today, only 4% of the original wetlands remain as a result of agriculture and development. Within our parks system, you'll find wetlands and ponds in Central, West (pictured), Founders and Meadowlark Parks. It's essential that we protect our remaining wetlands because wetlands protect and improve water quality, provide habitat for fish and wildlife, mitigate floodwaters, and filter contaminants. #WorldWetlandsDay
