Is there a way we can share events with your wonderful blog? Each week, we have a free email with activities at Chesapeake Bay Gateways and Watertrails (www.baygateways.net), many of which are near DC and have been featured on your blog. You can sign up for Chesapeake Trips and Tips at www.friendsofchesapeakegateays.org

We at Locust Grove Nature Center would also like to add events.

On Friday, Feb 12, we are offering an adult program called Wild Love to explore some of nature's more unusual mating systems. We'll be serving light refreshments too!

The program runs from 7:30 - 9 pm and costs $5/person. If interested, please call us at 301-765-8660 or check out www.locustgrovenature.org
