Busy, busy, busy

Whew! It has been an exciting season so far. Sorry for neglecting the blog for so long.

We've been all over the place working with all kinds of students. We spent a few weeks in Beverly, WV teaching 5th graders from Randolph County. We took a group of students from the Winston School in New York City on a canoe trip down the Delaware River. The Riverdale School, also from NYC, had us hiking, climbing and rafting in Maryland on and near the Appalachian Trail.

St. Albans School from Washington D.C. participated in our Classic Spruce Course. They have been with us for quite some time. We also had a great week of staff training where we learned about water quality, amphibians, and other fun things. The Winchester Thurston School from Pittsburgh visited us for the first time earlier this week and had a great time. North Elementary from Elkins, WV is hiking to Spruce Knob today, and they look to get a gorgeous view from the top.

Thanks for checking in! I'll work harder not to neglect the blog.
