I can't think of a better place to spend summer days than at Lake Anna's State Park.  What a wonderful way to discover more about the environment we are lucky enough to enjoy.  Perhaps you have children or grandchildren that would benefit from a program like this.  Why not encourage them to learn more about the wonders of nature.  How great if they share what they learn with you.

Hi Laura...So true!  I imagine some of these activities can be done in the Visitor's Center which would be helpful if it rains or is unbearably hot.

Hi Gary...Me too!  It made me realize how much I've forgotten or never learned. 

Actually I think there's a lot of kid in both of us.  Thank goodness!

Kate what a great program.  Many kids today don't enjoy the outdoors, too fascinated with their digital tools.
