ASPI is excited to host the inaugural event of the new Rockcastle Natural Wonder Series - a monthly program to enrich us with knowledge and the experiences of all of the nature of Rockcastle County. The Kick-Off will include guided hikes of the Zalla Trail - focussing on the mesophytic cove forest, information from several conservancy programs, an interactive display about wild edibles, and ecology and family fun activities. June 21st - from 10:00 - 2:00 - we'll have the Mary E. Fritsch Nature Center
open, as well as the Cordwood House for tours.
Other activities this summer include:
Reading in the Woods Series for young children (pre-school to early elementary)
Fairy Houses and Eleven Forts
Native Pollinators for home gardeners and backyard naturalists
We are also hosting a volunteer day - Volunteers and Veggies - help us maintain the site - trails, buildings, grounds (wherever your talent lies), bring a sandwich and a water bottle, and we'll provide lots of veggie sides!
See Workshops, Classes, and More for the details of each program.
