    Potomac Valley Master Naturalists

        

    Relatively new on the scene, Master Naturalist programs are patterned after the Master Gardener Program that has been offered in many states for many years by local extension agents. The basic approach for both programs is to combine education with public service.

    West Virginia's Master Naturalist Program is one of the first in the nation. It was established in 2003 by the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources, and it is administered by that agency.

    Potomac Valley Audubon Society (PVAS) partnered with WVDNR in 2006 to establish the  Master Naturalist program, which is the official Master Naturalist Chapter for the Eastern Panhandle.

    Camp Cool Spring: Week 1 - Ages 10-13

    Rock On! (Morning)

    CSI: Wildlife Forensics (Afternoon)!

    Leaders: Annitsa Spanos, Clare Chesnavage, Rich Minnis

    Rock On!

    Do you know what minerals are in your toothpaste? Learn about fossils and the rock cycle, and use the tools of a geologist. Go core sampling in a cupcake and hard rock mining in a chocolate chip cookie. We'll also start our very own rock collection! Learn how to classify rocks and explore their patterns. Take a meteorite walk. Create your own sands of time, crystal shapes, sand-stone, and an exploding volcano. Do experiments about plate tectonics. See how geology rocks your world and affects plants, animals and people every day.

    CSI: Wildlife Forensics

    Crime scene investigation television shows are quite popular. Using science and clues to solve crimes is not new and do not always depend on technology. Determining time of death, identification of animal species, tracking, forensic entomology and collecting evidence are all techniques that wildlife conservation officers use in solving wildlife crimes. Join us to become wildlife forensic scientists for a time to explore and solve several wildlife related crimes.

    Camp Cool Spring: Week 3

    Words, Music and Inspiration!

    Ages 10 - 13

    Teaching Artist: Steve Warner

    Nature has been the inspiration for thousands of songs. Just think of how many songs reference the sun and moon!  We’ll rely on the beautiful surroundings at Cool Spring to help tap into our creativity. Expect great things to happen. And it will...as you learn about song form, structure, lyric and melody in way that will empower you to write something special. Campers do not need any prior music skill or knowledge, just a willingness to express their ideas. Those who play instruments or sing are encouraged to share their talents with the class. We will explore types of songs and what makes certain ones so memorable. Participants will also have an opportunity to sample instruments for accompaniment...guitar, ukelele, mandolin, even a hand drum. We’ll also delve into the art of performing and touch on a bit of music theory. Our primary goal will be to write a song as a group and perform it for parents and guests on the last day of camp. The week will be somewhat tailored to the make up of the group and we’ll have plenty of time for one on one mentoring. Our primary objective will be to have FUN.
