CAMA Prepares For Return of Our Famous Fall Festival - 

Three days - September 24, 25, and 26, 2021.

2021 Fall Festival - click here 

Scheduled for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, September 24-26, 2021  Despite a recent increase in the transmission rate of Covid-19, our summer mini-shows went off without a hitch. Those who were not vaccinated, wisely wore face masks when inside our buildings, and practiced social distancing to a great extent.    Our wish is that by September the latest spike will have subsided, so we are hoping to move forward with this CAMA-defining show once again.  

The Board of Directors is acting conservatively and prudently, and was concerned that many CAMA members, docents and volunteers are senior citizens and are at a higher risk for the widely reported dangerous respiratory effects of contracting Coronavirus.

It is our hope that a sense of safety and prudence will prevail for our 2021 season, given the likelihood of a more widespread distribution of the Covid vaccine bringing this dangerous disease under control.    


 Other Notes:

NEW!  Hall of Connecticut Geology and Paleontology 

 A page has been added to the website describing CAMA’s newest addition - the new wing of the Connecticut Museum of Mining and Mineral Science. Called the Hall of Connecticut Geology and Paleontology (click here to go to the new page), the exhibits delve into the creation of the land we call Connecticut, and all the upheavals that created the geology we see in the State today. Exhibits also look into the paleontology of Connecticut with exhibits that chronicle the creatures that once lived where you are walking today.
