A full month of good things to do where I volunteer. At the Howard County Conservancy, there are a number of days we have events. I volunteer at a few and attend others when I can.
This Saturday Ray Bosmans is coming back with his snakes. Always a very well attended free event. At 10 am.
Next Tuesday, we begin our series of volunteer winter hikes. New friends are most welcome. Hike at 9:30. Lecture at 11. The 14th we will learn about the soil at Mt. Pleasant presented by Dean Cowherd, NRCS.
Then, same time on the 28th, Kerry Wixted or DNR will present Exploring Maryland’s Biodiversity.
February 11th, over at the Belmont site, The History of Belmont.
For me, these continuous learning opportunities keep me engaged. Learning more and becoming a better leader of field trips.
But, my favorite upcoming event is the Storytelling Event.
JAN 19- Sunday 3-5pm Tales of Nature: An Afternoon of Professional Storytelling with Adam Booth, Diane Macklin and Marc Young. An afternoon of storytelling that will delight and enchant both children and adults. Tales of earth’s creatures and Mother Nature will be among the stories told by three different professional story tellers from three different traditions: Appalachian, American & African Griotic, and Jewish. $5/person; $15/family. Space is limited, registration required!.
The description from the web site. If you have never seen truly talented story tellers, this is a must attend event.
Wow, add to that my program committee meeting, and I will certainly be busy in the New Year.
