Daily earthy demonstration at 2 p.m., from learning frog and
toad calls to building a basin and meeting some animals!
- "Muddy Music"
Daily at 12:30 p.m. Grab a spot in front of the big
picture windows on the upper floor and sing along with some
of Vermont's best singer-song writers such as Jon Gailmor, Lewis
