Volunteers and staff worked tirelessly to clean up, clear out, and brighten up the grounds for all the upcoming summer visitors.

A beautifully scenic spot was chosen for the new course. It has already become a treasured addition to Dog Mountain.

Dog Mountain in Bloom:

We are excited to offer new Seedles Seed Bombs & Wildflower Seed Ball packets in the Gallery!

 

Seedles

 

Now you can help Dog Mountain grow the rainbow this season!

Seedles are rainbow bright balls of seed, compost, and clay. All you have to do is throw them and grow them.

 

Seedles

 

The Seedles packets are for sale in the gallery and can be scattered all over Dog Mountain! The flowers they grow will help encourage and propagate the dwindling bee population. Good for the bees, good for Dog Mountain, and good for the earth.

News from the Gallery:

This past weekend we had a wonderful visitor in the gallery.

 

Paul Daniels

 

Paul Daniels is a dairy farmer from East Albany, NY who stopped by Dog Mountain on his way to a St. Johnsbury event where he was playing with the local bluegrass band.

This was Paul's first visit to Dog Mountain and we were so lucky to have him give us an impromptu violin performance right in the gallery! Our wonderful gallery manager, Pam McCann, even stepped in to provide vocals!

Thank you, Paul, for the for the memorable musical treat!

Join us on Saturday, March 11th from noon-8pm for a birthday celebration and bonfire in honor of Dog Mountain's beloved mascot, Sally!

Bring your pooch and join us to celebrate Sally's 4th trip around the sun!

 

Sally with birthday hat

 

From noon to 5pm, Sally will greet her birthday guests in the gallery. Join her for doggie (and people) birthday cupcakes, as well as other delicious sweets and treats. Puppy party favors will be given out to four-legged partygoers, and Makin' Maple will provide Sugar on Snow for our two-legged guests.

 

Happy Birthday Giclee

 

Afterwards, join Sally on the mountain for some snowy fun! Sledding, ice skating, snowshoeing, and hiking! The Dog Mountain trails will be lit with tiki torches and luminarias -- perfect for a nighttime hike.

 

Sled Dogs

 

The bonfire will be burning until 8 pm. Gather round to roast some s'mores and hotdogs while enjoying a birthday snuggle under the stars with Sally!

In lieu of birthday presents, Dog Mountain will be accepting donations of pet food, pet supplies, and old towels and blankets for the Kingdom Animal Shelter.

The event is volunteer driven and free to everyone. And, as always, dogs welcome!

 

Thank you for your support! You make Dog Mountain possible!
