KIDS | "Quest for the Knotties" 

The "Knotties" — tiny, mystical woodland creatures created by local sculptor and Nazareth College associate professor Doot Bokelman — live deep on the trails of Ganondagan, adding a touch of fantasy to the historic site. To tell the story of the "Knotties" and their adventure with a group of youngsters, Bokelman wrote the children's book "Knotties of Ganondagan," which combines elements of Seneca culture with up-to-date ecological issues. On Saturday, August 23, Friends of Ganondagan and the youth group, Children of the White Corn, are leading children on an adventure to find the "Knotties" along the trails. Families can learn more about the history of Ganondagan and the "Knotties," take a Knottie House gallery tour, and create a new group story with Bokelman.

"Quest for the Knotties" will take place Saturday, August 23, at Ganondagan State Historic Site, 1488 State Route 444, Victor. 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Advance admission is $50 for a family of four — includes Bokelman's book and a Knottie house starter kit. Admission day of is $12 for adults and $8 for children up to 16. For more information, visit
