Bringing humans and nature closer together<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

The Procter Camp & Conference Center, part of the Episcopal<br />

Diocese of Southern Ohio, states that its mission is to “embody and<br />

teach creation care, spiritual development, and hospitality by becoming<br />

a beloved community.”<br />

When asked to explain the creation care component, Jerusalem<br />

Greer, Procter’s interim executive director, said, “It means we work<br />

towards caring for the earth, all of what we would term creation—<br />

flora, fauna, climate, the environment, all of that—as an expression<br />

of our Christian faith.”<br />

The center—a<br />

retreat, camp,<br />

farm, and event<br />

facility on State<br />

Route 38 just outside<br />

of London—<br />

recently received<br />

state funding for<br />

a project that will<br />

better connect<br />

people with the<br />

plants and animals<br />

in the facility’s<br />

70 acres of forested wetlands.<br />

Slated to start in late winter or early spring, the project involves<br />

installing a boardwalk, observation deck, teaching space, and educational<br />

placards.<br />

This will allow visitors an up-close look at the area’s unique features,<br />

including vernal pools which are shallow depressions that<br />

typically contain water for only part of the year. These pools serve<br />

as habitat for all sorts of creatures, including<br />

red-spotted newts, fairy shrimp, crayfish,<br />

dragonflies, and frogs.<br />

Funding for the project came in the form<br />

“We’re excited about what we have<br />

planned. We’re grateful, and we look forward<br />

to sharing with the wider community.”<br />

–Jerusalem Greer, interim executive director<br />

Procter Camp & Conference Center<br />

of a $5,000 Environmental Education Fund<br />

grant from the Ohio EPA. Procter was one<br />

of 13 organizations across the state to receive<br />

funding this fall. Half of the civil<br />

penalties the state collects for violations of<br />

air and water pollution control regulations<br />

goes into the fund for grants, scholarships,<br />

and other efforts that promote environmental<br />

education.<br />

This project signals the start of fulfillment<br />

of a broader vision Procter has for<br />

teaching creation care.<br />

“It’s going to take a while. It will be built<br />

in stages,” said Greer, noting the center is<br />

working on a five-year plan. “This grant<br />

helps us begin the process of those first<br />

stages.”<br />

The overall plan includes the introduction<br />

of more native plantings to complement<br />

the existing grasses, shrubs, and trees. Trail<br />

systems could be in place by next summer.<br />

Other observation decks are a possibility.<br />

“The hope is that we can have school<br />

groups come out for field trips or even<br />

overnight stays,” Greer said. “We plan to<br />

offer guided tours either by members of our<br />

The Procter Camp & Conference Center is embarking on a multi-phase, multi-year project to enhance access<br />

to its 70 acres of forested wetlands.<br />

staff or people from the community.<br />

We (already) have facilities<br />

where groups could stay<br />

overnight in cabins. We want to<br />

have outdoor camping options, as<br />

well.”<br />

Once completed, the amenities<br />

would be available to anyone participating<br />

in a camp, retreat, or<br />

event at the Procter. They also<br />

would be available to the public.<br />

“Anyone is welcome to come<br />

and visit and explore our natural<br />

offerings just by coordinating<br />

ahead of time with our office,”<br />

Greer said.<br />

Eventually, Danielle Vogel,<br />

the center’s director of farm development<br />

and creation care advocacy,<br />

will coordinate<br />

community engagement programs<br />

with schools and other<br />

groups.<br />

“We’re excited about what we<br />

have planned. We’re grateful, and<br />

we look forward to sharing with<br />

the wider community,” Greer<br />

said.<br />

Vernal pools are a unique natural feature in the forested woodlands at the<br />

Procter Camp & Conference Center. These shallow pools of water provide<br />

habitat for a variety of creatures, from red-spotted newts to fairy shrimp.

So much to do at Mt. Sterling Christmas event<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

With each passing year, the Mount Sterling<br />

Chamber of Commerce builds on<br />

Christmas in the Village, its annual holiday<br />

extravaganza.<br />

“If it’s been a while since you’ve gone to<br />

it, it’s definitely worth checking out again,”<br />

said Barbie Wallace, Chamber vice president.<br />

“The event has grown so much over<br />

the last few years. The town transforms into<br />

a Hallmark movie kind of night.”<br />

This year’s Christmas in the Village is<br />

set for Dec. 2, 4-8 p.m., in downtown Mount<br />

Sterling.<br />

Local businesses will be open, offering<br />

holiday specials and treats. Vendors will be<br />

set up under a heated tent on the town hall<br />

lawn, 1 S. London St., and in Masonic Lodge<br />

269, 54 N. London St. Shoppers will find<br />

everything from wood crafts, laser-cut earrings,<br />

and all-natural laundry and household<br />

products to freeze-dried candy,<br />

homemade dog treats, and direct sales<br />

items. Vendor spots are still available. The<br />

cost is $40 for indoor or outdoor spots. The<br />
