  • Exceptional Foundation Chili Cook Off

This is a fun, quirky, outdoor party offering good food, drink and friends at a “come as you are” event. This event has developed a loyal following across a diverse audience base. There seems to be an engaging atmosphere that you can’t quite put your finger on — a unique camaraderie exists amid the tongue in cheek, yet somehow serious, competition between teams who vie for the judges’ and public’s approval in hopes of taking home a trophy for their particular chili recipe

  • Music with Ms Meg at Ruffner Mountain

oin us once again in celebrating our “neighbors” in urban wildlife!

This year’s classes will still expose students to singing, dancing, book reading, crafting, and a whole bunch of ecology, but in two age brackets: 0-3 and 4-6.

In the 10:00 am class for ages 0-3, Meg will focus on motor development, social and language skills, early exposure to music and nature, and, for parents, resources for being musical at home with your infant or toddler.

Then at 2:00 pm, our 4-6 year old class will meet to explore the connections between music and wildlife as we did last year! Both classes will last approximately one hour. Registration for this program is highly appreciated.


Saturday, 10am – 3pm
