Wildcrafting: Lip Balm and Wild Herbal Salve - Sunday, May 26th, 2019

Sunday, May 26th - Spring is finally here and the feeling of renewal is in the air!  To celebrate we thought it would be fun to pamper ourselves. 

Herbal salves and lip balms are ointments that can be used to sooth and moisturize your skin and lips and are easy to make from the fresh 'weeds' you have in your backyard or garden. You'll also learn about the qualities of different plants that can help you customize herbal salves that you make to suit your needs.

Nature Education Series: The World of Plants - Sunday April 14, 2019

Sunday, April 14th - Join naturalist Valérie Cournoyer as she discusses the diverse plants on Volcan Mountain. Together, we'll explore VMF's trails and examine the unique plant adaptations and habitats on the mountain. From wild fires and hot dry summers, to snowy winters, plants have evolved fascinating strategies to thrive in these environments. Not only have they adapted to these conditions, they are tightly intertwined with the fauna around them, supporting a diverse array of animals.

Volunteer Stewardship Day Saturday, March 30, 2019

Saturday, March 30th - Bill Augustus is looking for a few good volunteers who aren't afraid to to roll up their sleeves and get dirty. Of course, there’s always fun to be had too!

….MANY HANDS MAKE LIGHT WORK, SO ANYONE INTERESTED IS WELCOME!
