If you weren't already planning to come and join the community celebration of the Full Moon...make it your extemporaneous plan now. The Full Worm Moon marks the time that the worms are coming up from the once frozen ground, opening up the soil for the roots of trees and flowers to thrive for spring. It's gonna be stellar (as are the free S'mores). We gather at 6pm and stay until the crowd goes home. https://www.palmbeachdailynews.com/news/20200306/worm-moon-is-back-when-to-enjoy-its-peak-of-bright-rotundness

Mighty Girl Art

Here's the official announcement! Mighty Girl Art (formerly housed in Reston the last decade) has relocated their Summer Session to the Nature Center! June 22-26th Daughters (and Moms if you like to accompany) are invited to join in the outdoor magical creative process with our incredible friend and Master Naturalist Wendy. Wendy has created public art at the Nature Center these last five years with me and has supported our Youth Naturalist programs and 4-H programs as my side-kick chief lead these many years. She is an artist extraordinaire and I can't express how thrilled I am that she is willing to do her summer session at our location. Spots are limited to 12 so sign up now! https://mightygirlart.com/

Mighty Girl Art™ is an art empowerment workshop for girls (and moms) located in Northern Virginia.  We live in a society where a girl's self confidence is challenged daily by an assault of images which suggest that they are somehow not good enough the way they are. Mighty Girl Art™ empowers you...

Ecopsychology: How Immersion in Nature Benefits Your Health

So excited for Reston artist and Mighty Girl Art entrepreneur to be teaching at the Nature Center this summer!!!

A growing body of research points to the beneficial effects that exposure to the natural world has on health, reducing stress and promoting healing. Now, policymakers, employers, and healthcare providers are increasingly considering the human need for nature in how they plan and operate.

Nearly Half of Honey Tested Contains Mostly Rice Syrup, Wheat Syrup or Sugar Beet Syrup

We will harvest more in a couple months. Until then...just FYI

Honey makers are secretly “watering” down their honey with cheap syrups that have been impossible to detect until now. A new testing method has revealed nearly half of the honey sold in Australia, one of the world’s largest exporters of honey, is diluted with cheap sweeteners like rice syrup, ...

When will the nature center be opening to the public? Thank you!
Any date on when the plastics recycling program will resume?
Could you please make sure the water bottle for the rabbits doesn't fall to the ground? I put it up for them on that rope (which doesn't hold it up at all) and when they finally got water, the rabbits drank for a long time. I was so sad for them that they were that thirsty.
Turtles!
Bunnies!
Has honey from the hives been harvested for sale?
If you have t car show next month, there anything posted any where?
Hi! Broadlands resident here. The gym electronic lock is not working. Three different people just tried it with no luck. Can you help, please?
Please keep an eye out for this dog.
