    Join us as we uncover the mysteries of the forest.  Look for clues to learn what animals have been there and what they were doing.  We'll peek under logs, hunt for animal tracks and scat, dissect owl pellets, examine bones and skulls, and investigate the signs that animals leave behind.  There's plenty of time for games and building your fort in the woods!

    • Non-PVAS members pay the higher price for the first child only.  All other children in your family may be enrolled at the lower price.
