Save the Date! July 13 is the return of Fireflies, Fiddles, and Frogs. Last year's event was so fabulous we had to bring it back! You don't have to register, just pack a picnic and come on out to enjoy the fun! (We're planning free ice cream, too!)
Thanks to My Organic Market (MOMs) in Frederick MD for sharing with PVAS today!
There are still a few openings in sessions at Audubon Discovery Camp. If a session is full, please register for a waiting list as we are filling spots from those lists now! Information about what to bring to camp and directions to the sites can be found here.
PVAS is seeking a motivated educator to teach our fourth grade watershed education program as an AmeriCorps member. More details about the position are here.
There's been a lot in the news lately about the Zika virus. Although we are not at great risk in this area, 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?
Our Next PVAS Monthly Program
We're taking a break for the summer! PVAS's next monthly program will be held on Wednesday, September 14, at 7 p.m. Amy Evrard will discuss Living In Nature: The World's Hunter-Gatherers. See you in September at Hospice of the Panhandle in Kearneysville (GPS: Hospice Lane is opposite the Food Lion, 50 Coast Guard Dr., Kearneysville WV (on old Route 9), not the old location in Martinsburg). Please see hospiceotp.org for directions to their new facility.
Teachers! PVAS has lots of teacher resources and new ones are being posted regularly. Teachers are encouraged to check out our Educational Programs and our StoryWalk website. And why not apply to be a WV Sustainable School!
