You will also learn how to drill a hole in a stone and how to make a matched pair of earrings out of rock. Cost of the class is $80. All materials are provided. To register contact Joel Arnold.
Full Moon Howlers: Snowshoe
6:00pm / Durango Nordic Center
One way to beat the darkness of this time of year is to get outside and enjoy it! While experiencing the alpine glow of the Twilight Peaks and the rise of the full moon, strap on your snowshoes and join SJMA staff for an 60-90 minute interpretive walk. Afterwards, take in the beauty of the moonlit landscape and mingle with like-minded folks while warming by the bonfire and sipping a nice hot beverage (hot cocoa and mulled wine will be provided by the Nordic Center).   This is an event for the whole family.
