Thumbs up to lending a hand to help our environment. Jamestown Community College will host its Earth Day festivities from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday. Weather permitting, Earthfest will be held outside the Hamilton Collegiate Center near the pond. Otherwise, the program is held in the Student Union. At noon, a display of live birds of prey will be presented by falconry expert Mike Dupuy. Co-sponsored by the Roger Tory Peterson Institute, Dupuy's program focuses on falconry as a sport, a profession, and a metaphor for universal human aspirations. Earthfest also features various educational displays, the sale of ecofriendly products and food, and a tree seedling adoption made possible by donations from the Chautauqua County Soil and Water Conservation District. A "Nature Art and Literature Corner," featuring works by JCC faculty and students, is a new addition to this year's Earthfest. Area residents more interested in physically pitching in can participate in the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy's clean-up of its Whitney Point Preserve on April 26 and the annual M&T Bank Hands on Jamestown Cleanup sponsored by the Jamestown Renaissance Corp. on May 17.
