CLEAR SPRING - The Fairview Outdoor Education Center, nestled along the slopes of the mountain that bears its name, is opening its gates to the public Saturday, April 24, for a celebration marking 25 years of bringing together youngsters and nature.
An open house will be held at the 100-acre site at 12808 Draper Road beginning at 9 a.m. The intent is to introduce the school to newcomers and to reacquaint former students with the facility.
Activities begin at noon with bird hikes, nature hikes, geology hikes, reptile displays, a rain barrel workshop and singing by Todd Vogtman.
The rain barrel workshop entails providing materials and knowledge to assemble a rain barrel at home. Each participant will be charged $5 for supplies.
