Trip departure and return dates and time: 
Sunday, April 03 2016 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Trip Description: 

Join us for an easy day hike hike along the Gregory Canyon trail as we introduce BVICO’s new Art and Writing Academy. The Gregory Canyon Trail is widely appreciated for its wildflowers and microhabitats, and is especially beautiful in the springtime. During this outing, students will receive hardcover nature journals and spend the day collecting wildflowers and plants to creatively personalize the outside of their journals. Throughout the year, students will have ample opportunity to sharpen their journaling skills as well as learn simple nature sketching techniques, crafts, and other visual art and writing skills. All of the art supplies and journals are provided by BVICO.
