There's been a lot in the news lately about the Zika virus. 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 also carry West Nile Virus. Why give them a chance to bite you?
Our Next PVAS Monthly Program
PVAS's next monthly program will be held in January as we take a break in December. Enjoy the holidays and we hope to see you in January at Hospice of the Panhandle in Kearneysville (GPS: Hospice Lane is opposite the Food Lion, 50 Coast Guard Dr., Kearneysville WV (on old Route 9), not the old location in Martinsburg). Please see hospiceotp.org for directions to their new facility.
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!
