Discover some common constellations, learn the phases of the moon, look and listen for nocturnal animals! Roast a marshmallow over the fire for a S’more once we return.
From 1868 to 1938, children played on the third floor of the Mansion, which was filled with toys and dolls and even featured a theater where they may have performed. This year, after undergoing expert restoration, the Museum’s doll collection along with several vintage toys will be exhibited as part of Christmas Playtime at the Mansion, an exhibition that will recreate those playful times during the Victorian era.
The first floor of the Mansion will feature Christmas trees decorated with period-appropriate ornaments, a dining table adorned with dazzling antique silver and china, several playful dolls and toy vignettes, and sumptuous Victorian gowns curated by Stacey Danielson, with generous loans from the Wilton Historical Society.
Please come visit the Reindeer and enjoy beautiful Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses. Pick out your Christmass Tree, holiday plantings and you won’t want to miss the Christmas Shop for festive, fun, unique holiday gifts.
Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics typically complete a postsecondary educational program. All states require EMTs and paramedics to be licensed; requirements vary by state.
Employment of emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics is projected to grow 7 percent from 2018 to 2028, faster than the average for all occupations. Emergencies, such as car crashes, natural disasters, and acts of violence, will continue to require the skills of EMTs and paramedics.
Both a high school diploma or equivalent and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification typically are required for entry into postsecondary educational programs in emergency medical technology. Most of these programs are nondegree award programs that can be completed in less than 1 year; others last up to 2 years. Paramedics, however, may need an associate’s degree. Programs in emergency medical technology are offered by technical institutes, community colleges, universities, and facilities that specialize in emergency care training. Some states have EMR positions that do not require national certification. These positions typically require state certification.

FACT: unless you’re reducing your consumption of plastic, recycling means nothing
PROBLEM: plastic is everywhere and part of everything-including clothing
SOLUTION: do what can, when possible. Don’t buy unless absolutely necessary and there is no alternative.
What I’ve done:
Buy used clothes, to reduce demand for new resources to manufacture brand new clothes. 60% of my current wardrobe is used, including shoes and sneakers
Carry reusable silverware to use at work
Use mug or reusable cup at work for drinks
Refuse packet condiments/disposable silverware (especially if it’s take out, you got it at home)
Buy vitamins in glass bottles (glass can be recycled over and over)
Having a party? Buy aluminum cans instead of soda in gallon. Aluminum can be recycled multiple times.
Stop buying products that use excessive packaging
Become aware of how much garbage- including recycling, you make per day. There are some days I don’t make any garbage.
I made a conscious effort to be aware of my impact. I don’t worry about others, I do what I can. I am among millions on this planet that got companies changing their ways because they’re loosing money by not being mindful of the garbage they’re creating with their products.

I have turned my front and back lawns into habitats for native insects. American lawns are modeled after British manor homes. Trying to achieve this archaic ideal has become so standard it’s cliche.
Tall native grasses of the Northeast were decimated to make way for smaller tropical and genetically modified smaller species which are easy to cut.
I’ve learned from untold research that trees, native plants and tall grasses that are allowed to flower provide the most food for native and migrating pollinators like bees and butterflies. Birds that do not migrate also benefit from seeds of mature grasses during the lean winter months when food is scarce.
My yard is a combination of food garden while the remaining is a native and non-native plants. Since I’ve changed from a manor house grass lawn I’ve had so many visitors to my lawn!
So basically, as stated in 1989’s Field of Dreams, “If you build it, they will come.”
