The Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship offers some really cool educational activities.
Once in the fall and once in the spring, they offer a family nature walk led by Phil Daley. We went on the fall walk with Phil and we really enjoyed it. Phil was great with the kids - pointing things out for them, asking them questions that kept them engaged, picking things up along the trail to show the boys or let them hold. We learned a lot and really enjoyed the walk with Phil.
NEXT SUNDAY, 2 NOVEMBER is the Exploring Fall Free Family Hike with Phil. You're required to register in advance so he knows how many people are coming.
I'm disappointed it's on a Sunday this year and conflicts with our church plans, but if you are able to go, I highly recommend taking the walk with Phil.
