Program Updates

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

Job Opportunities.  PVAS often has need for part-time program instructors.  More information can be found 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?

Are you looking for a good nature book?  Check out some suggestions here!

Natural History Workshops!  PVAS offers many workshops during the year.  The 2015 events can be found in the Events Calendar. More are added frequently.
