Spring Into Adventure!
It's the spring schedule for Adventurers!
As always, spring schedules are entirely weather dependent: not only do some events get canceled by bad weather, others get shuffled when the magnolias/cherry blossoms/azaleas bloom off schedule. It's all part of the Adventure!
Also, please note that unlike last semester, these trips are all on Tuesdays.
Franciscan Monastery Always a great trip, especially during Lent.
3/8 Fort McHenry Exploring the fort from the Star Spangled Banner is more fun if you beat the crowds by going in March. Not only do you get to hunker down in the "bombproofs", they have cannons from at least four different wars!
3/15 National Zoo Weather dependent, of course, but early March is often a great time to visit the Zoo. You get early spring, lots of animals and no crowds. Also you don't overheat while tromping back up the hill to your car!
3/22 Skip week: Holy Week
3/29 National Arboretum The magnolias should be in bloom!
4/5 Cherry Blossoms If I get the bloom time right... otherwise the C + O Canal
4/12 The Walters This will dovetail with the Awesome History Middle Ages class
4/19 The Baltimore Museum of Art or the C + O Canal/Great Falls
4/27 National Arboetum: The Azalea Walk should be at peak bloom.
5/3 Monuments on the Mall (Washington Monument, WWII Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, maybe more) This will be a hike! It's one mile from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial, so we'll see how far we get (and if I can figure out how to park in the middle!)
5/10 Fossil Hunt (Shark's teeth) down by the Bay. This should come right after the last Masters of Disasters class on fossils! I may also do one more shark tooth trip in May when Mxyl and Klenda are done with their college classes.
