What's Great In Dayton - Social Distancing Edition: May 1 - 7, 2020

May 1, 2020

Since you are outside and walking, you are seeing so much more of our wildlife. And with the warming weather, snakes are also coming out. Springtime usually brings an increase in snake sightings, and Ohio is home to about 33 species of snakes. If you want to learn more about this, go to the Ohio History website where you will find a Springtime Snake ID.

Dayton Philharmonic, the Dayton Ballet, and the Dayton Opera have activities you can do at home on the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance website!

Saturday is a “Birdathon.” This is when you pick a time and try to spot and identify as many bird species as possible. This is a backyard project rain or shine.

Have you been spending more time in your home office and noticing that you could use some art on your walls? The Essential Artists: Dayton have a new website featuring the work of local artists.

The Stratford Festival in Canada has a film festival to entertain you during this period of social isolation. They are offering streaming of 12 of their most successful Shakespeare productions beginning with King Lear…and there is no cost.

Each Friday Dayton Live posts a new video on their Facebook page.

Happy May Day!
Charlie, today is my birthday and I’m 77 years old, Campbell
