Teacher Workday Fun

Looking for something to do this September's teacher workdays?  Here is an opportunity for 9 year olds and older.  It will be led by Extension staff.     The times are Thursday Sept. 27  from 1 to 3 and Friday September 28 from 8:00 am until 5 pm.
Learn about the flora and fauna found on Appalachian Balds and in Spruce-Fir Forest ecosystems.  We'll investigate the plants, wildlife, and insects that are unique to these habitats and discover how these organisms have adapted to the harsh conditions of some of the highest and most exposed ridges in the Southern Appalachians. The dates are September 27 and 28 2012. Friday we will have a hike in Grayson Highlands State Park and have the chance to observe many different types of plants and animals. We will observe the Wild Ponies that are used for vegetation management in the park. Great photo opportunities! As the hike is considered moderate to difficult, this class is for kids 9 and up.  Please call 264-3061 to register.
