Print Story | Email Story
SOUTH EGREMONT, Mass. — Flying Cloud Institute and Greenagers will hold a science and art exploration program during the February school break for children aged 9 to 13 years. 
 
It runs February 21 - 24, 2022, from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm (with early drop-off at 8:30 am), at the April Hill Education and Conservation Center in South Egremont. 
 
Participants will engage in science investigations, art projects, engineering challenges and nature explorations. This program was last held in February 2020, when activities included investigating temperature by making their own thermometers, exploring endo- and exothermic reactions by designing a cold pack or heat pack, and learning about insulation through a heating and melting challenge. Students also hiked nature trails, played games, and crafted original wooden decorations.
 
The program will be located at April Hill Education and Conservation Center, which serves as the headquarters for Greenagers, as well as a resource for community gatherings and education. The nearly 100-acre property has nature trails, vegetable gardens, orchards, pastures and hayfields, and abuts the Appalachian Trail. 
 
"Flying Cloud Institute is pleased to partner with Greenagers on this exciting adventure! We look forward to engaging youth with dynamic science and art activities to ignite their creativity," said Maria Rundle, executive director.
 
The cost is $210 for the four-day program. Participants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend. To register, visit flyingcloudinstitute.org or call (413) 645-3058 with questions.

The Wallflowers to Perform at Mahaiwe

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center announces the American rock act the Wallflowers, Jakob Dylan's Grammy-winning outfit, will perform live on its stage on Friday, May 20 at 8 p.m. 
 
"We're excited to bring the Wallflowers to the Berkshires," says Mahaiwe Executive Director Janis Martinson. "A headlining talent like Jakob Dylan is a great reason to shake off the winter and come out for live music this spring." 
 
According to a press release, ror the past 30 years, the Wallflowers have stood as one of rock's most dynamic and purposeful bands – a unit dedicated to and continually honing a sound that meshes timeless songwriting and storytelling with a hard-hitting and decidedly modern musical attack. That signature style has been present through the decades, baked into the grooves of smash hits like 1996's "Bringing Down the Horse" as well as more recent and exploratory fare like 2012's "Glad All Over."  
 
In 2021, the Wallflowers released "Exit Wounds." The collection marks the first new Wallflowers material since "Glad All Over."
