Class Details

May 11 – Bird-Watching Basics

Do you enjoy watching birds at your feeder? Do you want to learn to identify more than the iconic cardinal or chickadee? Or do you just want some tips on being a better birder? Then this is the class for you. Let’s go birding! We will take a short walk around the area to see if we can spot some birds.

Bring your binoculars if you have some. If you don’t have any, that’s okay – we have you covered! Field guides will also be available.

June 8 – Dutch Oven Cooking

We are taking Dutch oven cooking to the next level. We will be making some old standards and some new and exciting dishes in this class. Something for everyone!

When registering, please note any special dietary needs. We will do our best to have at least one dish that you can enjoy.

Sept. 14 – Survival Skills

Have you ever heard of the rule of three? Or ever want to learn how to build a fire without a lighter or a match? Well, this is the class for you! We will be starting a fire without a lighter or a match! If the fire is big enough, we might even roast a marshmallow or two.
