|The holiday season is busy with parties, decorating, religious services, shopping for loved ones, houseguests, travels both near and far – the myriad of things that are both pleasurable and challenging at the same time. Like you, we need to remind ourselves to occasionally pause the race and take time to appreciate the season and the riches that surround us. Set aside some time for a walk outside, pick up a cup of coffee and drive to a favorite scenic spot, or enjoy the lights and decorations in the neighborhood.|
In our case, we believe Oliver Wendell Holmes’ idea that, “A river is more than an amenity, it is a treasure”. Even in winter, the expanse of the frozen Genesee and the quiet of the woods and fields bordering it slows the heart rate and stills the mind.
If you need ideas for ways to enjoy the Genesee, here on our website you can explore some of our hiking suggestions (Genesee Watershed Hiking Ideas | Genesee RiverWatch) or look over our gallery of river photos (Gallery | Genesee RiverWatch). While on our website, please make a donation to our Year End Appeal so that we can continue our important work. Your support is appreciated and what makes everything that we do for the river possible.
Best wishes for a happy holiday season from your friends at Genesee RiverWatch!
