    Thanks to Maureen for arranging everything so the OCWC could again participate in this fun event! Pete’s display of bugs from the Creek was as popular and informative as ever. A special thanks to student Mark Steffenilla who was a wonderful assistant to Pete! And thanks to everyone who stopped by our display and especially those who signed up to help with the Oatka Park clean up and the Trees for Tribs project!
