Derek Webb has been working within real estate since 2013, 8 years. With a variety of experience in vacation rental management, homes and land. He has worked within multiple states and has experience in both residential and commercial real estate. Starting out with vacation rental properties, he then decided to get his Real Estate license to sell lake properties on Table Rock Lake in Branson, Missouri. When Derek and his family transitioned to Lancaster County, he knew he wanted to do real estate with the beautiful homes in the area. Derek enjoys helping clients make these big and sometimes tough decisions. He has a passion for the marketing of a home as well. He believes Lancaster County has it all, just about anything you could want you can find in Lancaster or within a short drive, a great place to live and play!

Snow More Geese

Wolf and Webb Realtors like to provide our clients personalized experiences where we not only work to help you sell or buy your home but also provide you ideas, suggestions and tips for the process and your time after. One way we provide tips is through our suggestions of things to do or ways to get involved in Lancaster County, this week we want to share with you more about Snow Geese!
Snow Geese…what are those you ask. Snow Geese are native to North America and there are white and dark ones. These beautiful birds migrate each year in our backyard, it is an experience like no other! Migrating is when animals move from one habitat to another typically depending on the season. If you are looking to see this for yourself look no further than Middle Creek located at 100 Museum Road in Stevens, Pennsylvania.

Are you curious about homes that are currently on the market, our website is a great spot to start your search!

Middle Creek is a wildlife management area providing Lancaster residents hiking trails, conservation trails, Non-motor boat experiences, events and a heritage museum. Their website provides PDF documents of trail maps, tours, checklists, area maps, newsletters, curriculum, and more. Before scheduling your trip be sure to check it out to ensure you have everything you would need. 

This past weekend we took a trip to Middle Creek to watch the Snow Geese migration and it was remarkable! Before going to watch the Middle Creek Snow Geese Migration we tuned in to the video made by Middle Creek’s manager providing us all the information we needed to know in order to view the snow geese safely. 

Getting to Middle Creek in February or March is a great way to get the family outside, learn something new about wildlife and have an experience you will truly remember forever. Every year thousands of snow geese make a pit stop in Middle Creek. They are here in the winter months but leave in February or March this is why now is a great time to go. When you go to Middle Creek in March there is a chance you see the birds migrate, watching the geese fly with their white wings in the sky is a sight like no other. When we went to view the Snow Geese this past weekend we went to Willow Point Trail, a great spot to see the birds. Before packing up the family for an afternoon out it is important you dress warmly, bring your mask and something to capture this beautiful sign of nature! One suggestion from the Middle Creek employees is to visit in the early hours, that will provide less of a crowd when you go and would most definitely be breathtaking as the sun comes up!

It is important to follow the migration tracking on their website to ensure you go when you will be able to see these birds. If you are unable to get there this weekend it is definitely an activity you MUST add to your bucket list. Viewing these birds in real life will be jaw dropping, an experience you will not want to miss! Hopefully you and your loved ones can enjoy this magnificent experience soon!

If you cannot make it to the migration this year do not worry you can livestream from Pennsylvania Game Commission’s website. This is a great way to share the experience with your family and friends from the comfort of your own home. It is also a creative way to have your children learn, if you are a teacher maybe tune in to the live stream with your class while explaining migration? This could be a fun and creative way for your students to learn something in any subject and base it off of their own backyard of Lancaster County. If you do this definitely let me know, I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the Snow Geese Migration!

When it is not migration season that does not mean to stay away from Middle Creek, actually it means visit again and again! Middle Creek is open all year and provides patrons the opportunity to get out into nature in fun and different ways. If you and your friends want to enjoy the warm weather that is upon us heading over to Middle Creek for a hike is a great option or kyacking! Getting out on the water is a wonderful opportunity to destress and enjoy the breeze. Head out for a morning hike with a nice cup of coffee or pack up lunch for a day out on the water. Be sure to pack up what ever you pack to bring in, to ensure safety of wildlife and keeping our natural preserves clean! Great ways to get out and experience beautiful Lancaster in new ways, and more ways where you will want to just keep coming back for more. If you fall in love with our incredible County consider making it your home, here at Wolf and Webb we can assist you in buying a home. We pride ourselves in personalized experiences, afterall we are~

 Contact Mary Sue Wolf to look at homes and properties where you can enjoy seeing the snow geese flock every year….you will love it here!

Booking Up Your Weekend

Wolf and Webb Realtors like to provide our clients personalized experiences where we not only work to help you sell or buy your home but also provide you ideas, suggestions and tips for the process and your time after. One way we provide tips is through our suggestions of things to do or ways to get involved in Lancaster County, this week we want to share with you more about the books.

With the cold weather we have coming in what better way to spend your day than enjoying a new book or film? Taking time to unwind and read a book is a great way to break up all the screen time we have been having from doing work and school from home, dive into a new story or place, learn something new and just relax. Instead of going out to buy a new book, ordering one online or through your kindle head over to Lancaster Public Library and rent out a book! 

Using the library is a great way to be sustainable, not hold on to too many books, and also support our local community. Plus Lancaster Public Library has so much to offer! The library has two branches one in Lancaster City and the other in Mountville.  Each is open daily except for Sundays. The Lancaster location is at 125 North Duke Street, and Mountville is at 120 College Avenue. The library dates back to 1759 when it first opened, formed by 54 members and over time grew to the wonderful buildings and spaces we love, talk about another long history in our hometown that we have continued to use as a resource and will continue for years to come. Their mission holds true in the work that all the staff do each day to provide our community the access and resources for great books, “By providing equitable access to vital educational resources, exceptional programming, and community building opportunities, the Lancaster Public Library is recognized as a dynamic center of knowledge and a cornerstone of a thriving Lancaster community”. There are so many dedicated staff members within both locations be sure to thank them next time you head in to pick up a new read. 

So what does the library provide? Well it provides a lot more than books there are:

  • Passport services 
  • Meeting rooms
  • Public computers and free wifi
  • Proctoring
  • Movies
  • Interlibrary loans
  • Music
  • Programming and events
  • Job resources

And so many more special events, programs and initiatives. I would like to highlight 3 of their remarkable services. The first is their Grab Bags initiatives, this is a great way the library adapted during Covid-19, what you do is fill out their online form giving your library card number and your taste in books then one of the staff members browses the library to get new authors or books for you to enjoy! With the pandemic you have the ability to pick how you would like to pick up your grab bag from what location and using what services, because the library has lobby hours for fast pick up as well as curbside pick ups. 

Are you curious about homes that are currently on the market, our website is a great spot to start your search!

The library also has an Autism Resource Center that is 11 years old. This center provides great resources like literature, games and a learning space for social skills, behavioral therapy, conflict resolution, community awareness and interactions. The space is full of sensory items to meet the needs of all their patrons. This space is truly remarkable and a wonderful resource for all community members that may need it. 

The Duke Street Business Center is the third resource I would like to share with you all. This is a space for nonprofits, entrepreneurs, business individuals or anyone that would like to learn more. It is a space where the staff member is experienced in conducting business, and nonprofit research. The librarian is able to help you learn how to use different softwares and databases to meet your business needs and learn more. The business librarian is available by appointment only so you can really tailor your meeting to what needs you might have. The Duke Street Business Center also has computers and seating spaces that are for the use of business and nonprofit users only. It is wonderful for individuals to have their own space that they can go to for tailored help and equipment.

While the Center has individualized support so does the rest of the library, the employees are all incredible, hardworking and knowledgeable individuals that really make your experience a great one. 

Every week the library puts on multiple events at both locations. This is a great way to meet others within our community, enjoy learning about something new, join a book club or play games. What is wonderful about the events is that you pre sign up to the events that are in person so that way they can maintain capacity and ensure safety. They are also hosting virtual events for you to attend from the comfort of your own home! Events are a variety of topics, types of programs and also for a variety of age ranges, some are for teens, children or all ages. Be sure to check out their events calendar for this month, who knows you may want to get into a new book genre and joining a book club is a great way to start the discussion and find new authors to check out! 

With just a few more weeks until spring, spending so much time at home does not need to be boring, stressful or a time where you are at a loss for what to do. Especially with the Lancaster Public Library not far away. Get yourself a library card to enjoy great books, movies, online platforms and when we can have a great space to sit for an afternoon and have time for yourself. On your way home with a new book grab a cup of coffee from one of the many local shops and dive into a new story or learn something new with the help of the Lancaster Public Library. It is a great way to spend your time! If you find any good reads be sure to share, always up for a new book recommendation! 

Thanks for checking out this week’s Lancaster Local Secret, did you know in Pennsylvania a fan favorite is ham loaf- made from ham, ground pork, brown sugar, and seasoning? Have a great week!
