Visit Rose Hill on Saturday, July 22, 2017 from 12 to 4 p.m. to discover the history of local interaction with our four- and two-legged friends. Who, besides people, worked at Rose Hill Farm? What did the Swans think about farm animals and pets? At Rose Hill Gone Wild learn more about how the relationship between animals and people was reshaped during the years the Swan family lived at Rose Hill. The event will include information tables sponsored by area organizations including the Beverly Animal Shelter, the Eaton Bird Society, Montezuma Wildlife Refuge, and Colony Caregivers. There will be animal-related displays and a special scavenger hunt in the mansion. At 1:00 p.m. staff from the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse will present “Going Native,” an introduction to  animal species native to New York State.
