The 26th annual Adult Session will take place August 21-25. The theme for the weekend has yet to be determined, but tentative plans call for continued exploration of the Blue Ridge Parkway near Nature Camp. Our field trip this year will likely take us to the northern end of the Parkway to explore the world of metabasalt as we examine some globally rare plant communities and consider Virginia’s volcanic past. The five day session will also include classroom lectures, field studies and craft projects. Most of the classes are spent outdoors and are taught by volunteer instructors, many who are former campers and now professionals in the sciences.
Details and a registration form will be forthcoming on the Nature Camp website (www.naturecamp.net).
