About the Almanac

Living in the Town of Kent means living with nature! In celebration of our natural blessings, the Kent Conservation Advisory Committee (KCAC) has decided to host this online Nature Almanac, and we’re inviting anyone who’s interested to participate. What’s found in a typical nature almanac are informal notes recording observations about nature—comments about seasonal changes, common and unusual creatures and plants, the day and night sky—basically the simple joys of nature outside our own windows. Besides the online version, each month we’ll gather up the posted observations and publish a short email newsletter of the observations the Kent community posts here.

We hope you will begin to note and share your own observations of nature in your own backyard and around the Town of Kent. You can post them on this website if you like—instructions are on the home page—or you can email them to almanac@kentcac.info. Either way we hope you’ll share your observations!
