    - The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.

    - These fun learning adventures take place along the Kendall Trail in the Youghiogheny Wild and Scenic River Corridor. These walks are fun for all ages and the pace is mellow. If you are a photographer you will have plenty of scenic subjects to capture, from river scenes, to flowers, to lichens, mosses etc. You don't need any experience and we will have fun looking for the fleeting ephemeral flowers. We will of course also be looking for birds and specifically warblers on spring migration and water birds like green herons and mergansers etc.
