January 15 Winter Feast
Do you think fresh, local food is available only in summer? Think again! We will search for edible wilds, sample from the greenhouse, and learn to cook with herbs and greens. Dress for the weather; we will be going outside.
Registration code: Feast

January 29 Winter
Water in winter is cold or frozen, but life goes on. We will take samples from Lake Georgette, do experiments with ice and snow, and supercool liquids to watch ice crystals form. And we will consider how to save energy as we stay warm this winter. Part of this session will be outside.
Registration code: Water

February 12 Art in Nature
Nature’s beauty is all around us. We will look for patterns in the natural world, create large-scale outdoor art, and do crafts such as paper-making, marbled painting, and dye-making. We’ll also see how nature influences music and poetry. Participants must dress for the weather; we will be outside for part of this program. Registration Code: Art

February 26 Caves
How do caves and sinkholes form and why are they common in the Shenandoah Valley?
We will examine sedimentary rock, try cave painting, build a bat house, and learn why bats are in trouble. We will be outside, so proper attire is a must.
Registration Code: Caves

March 12 Signs of Spring
As the natural world prepares for spring, there are many things to explore. We will search for budding plants, burrowing earthworms, spring amphibians, migrating birds, and other signs of the changing season. We will be outside for most of this session, so dress for the weather!
Registration Code: Spring
