Cacapon Resort State Park offers fun and educational programs in July

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — Late July brings art, geology and a presentation about elk restoration to Cacapon Resort State Park.

On Wednesday, July 19, at 9:30 a.m., artist Ari Gejevski will be in the main lobby at Cacapon State Park Lodge to introduce a series of classes about painting flowers and trees, making crafts, creating poems and other nature-oriented themes. Gejevski will offer art classes on the third Wednesday of every month.

Geologist Ken Ashton will be in the Morgan Room on Thursday, July 20, at 7:30 p.m. to give a geology presentation. From learning the story about “falling rock” road signs to how fossils are formed, guests will find this one-hour presentation entertaining and informative. Ashton also will lead a “rock walk” on Friday, July 21 at 10 a.m. for a hands-on study of geology.

On Saturday, July 22, Division of Natural Resources biologist Randy Kelley will lead a program about elk restoration in southern West Virginia. The program will start at 8 p.m. Kelley will cover the elk restoration program’s progress — from its start, through receiving Elk from Kentucky and their eventual release into southern West Virginia’s mountains in late 2016. The program is free and open to the public.

Other activities planned at the Nature Center during the week of July 17- 23 include turtles and turtle craft, mystery box and the mystery of the day, kickball, Irish Road Bowling, planned hikes, meet a snake and yard dice. More information is available at www.cacaponresort.com or by calling 304-258-1022.
