Junior Forester Program @ Cradle of Forestry Heritage Site
Jun 14 @ 10:30 am – Aug 9 @ 12:30 pm
Junior Forester Program @ Cradle of Forestry Heritage Site | Pisgah Forest | North Carolina | United States

Forestry goes beyond studying trees and there are forest scientists who study just about everything between plants and animals. Junior Foresters will explore what a scientist needs to know when studying insects, reptiles, or water quality, and the skills they need to have such as orienteering or map reading.

This year’s themes are inspired by Natural Inquirer, who offers free materials for educators and children in English and Spanish.

Each youth receives a Junior Forester badge upon taking the “Conservation Pledge.”

Junior Foresters are invited to any number of the themed weeks. The program is designed for boys and girls ages 8-12. Please register ahead of time by calling 828-877-3130. Wednesdays June 14 – August 9

Introduction to Digital Photography for Youth @ Transylvania Community Arts Council
Jul 17 @ 9:30 am – Jul 21 @ 5:00 pm

This week long workshop held at the TC Arts Council will introduce the students to the concepts of digital photography and how their cameras work. Each class will combine classroom games and information with actual picture taking, so that students can reinforce the concepts and terminology that they are learning throughout the week. The week will culminate in a photo book produced by each student – optional for $15. The workshop will be led by Kathy King, Brevard photographer, who has experience teaching photography and writing. She began studying photography in the 1980’s then went on to have a 20 year legal career before returning to photography as a vocation in 2008. Since that time she has photographed hundreds of weddings, events, and individual and family portraits.

 

Students aged 8 – 10 years old will have photography class Monday thru Friday, July 17 – 21 from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm and students aged 11 – 13 years old will have class from 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm.
