We are looking for someone to assist with a masonry project at BJNC – it’s a fairly easy project for someone with that skill-set. We want to create 2 overflow brick enclosures for our outdoor composting classroom – 1 for dried leaves &1 for food scraps. We currently have an informal structure in place which does not hold materials well. Thanks in advance for any support or leads you can provide!

A couple days to Friday Funday – Birds of a Feather! Open to children of all ages, whether they are little ones who haven’t started their formal education yet or bigger kids who are homeschooled.

First we’ll go on a bird-themed hike & identify the birds we see. Then, we’ll head inside and complete two crafts. http://bit.ly/2lpVVHt
