Event - Everyone Is Invited
Step into Wildacres and Discover the WorldBlue Ridge Mountains
May 2 - 4, 2014
Follow winding trails, search for elusive salamanders, drink in fragrant wildflowers, glimpse majestic owls, gaze upon the stars and open our hearts. Seek, remember and love the wild around and in all of us. Intermingle a glass of wine, great music and terrific teachers to complete the recipe for one extraordinary experience.
It all adds up to Blue Ridge Discovery Weekend 2014.
Join us on top of the world at Wildacres Retreat to experience nature's majestic show. Return with Discovery Place, staff and expert naturalists from the Carolinas to the private 1,400 acre Wildacres Retreat in Little Switzerland, N.C. Throughout the weekend, learn about different Blue Ridge habitats, their rich natural resources and unique challenges and threats growing in the area. Dynamic programming offers many opportunities to engage with leaders in outdoor education, exchange ideas with peers and build lasting personal relationships. Join us, be inspired and share new ideas for involving others in field based investigative studies.
Educators and administrators will receive renewal credits for their North Carolina Standard Professional Educator's License.
