It's seems impossible, but camp is over for this summer!  Thanks to all our campers and parents for spending part of their summer vacation with us.  Special thanks to the camp staff for a fun and safe camp season!

Job Opportunities.  PVAS' watershed education program for fourth grade has become so popular that we need to hire instructors for next school year.  More information is on our Job Opportunities Page. 

Just a reminder...
in this part of the US, you want to keep using  insect repellent when out in the woods and grassy fields all year round.  Ticks in this area can carry Lyme Disease and mosquitoes can carry West Nile Virus.  Why give them a chance to bite you?
