Calendar: Whole Goats and Other Fools (March 29-April 3)

"3 Weed Note" by Patterson Clark:
multiflora rose inks, english ivy paper, white mulberry printing block.
Our picks for this April Fools week:

Tuesday night, come see Patterson Clark discuss using invasive plant materials to make art in his alienweeds project. Talk about turning things on their heads! He'll be at the White Oak Library in Silver Spring for the monthly meeting of the Maryland Native Plant Society. Free.

You and your kids can learn about Nature's April Foolers Saturday night at a Hidden Oaks campfire in Annandale: "how animals use trickery to get a meal or to keep from being a meal." $5-7.

We posted last summer about the three sections of the Billy Goat Trail (A, B, & C). The Appalachian Mountain Club's annual Whole Goat Hike (all three in one day, total 10 miles) is on Sunday. Free, registration required.

There's always more on our calendar. Enjoy!
