The Friends of the Virgin Islands National Park organize dozens of fascinating workshops and activities during the winter season. Upcoming events will feature author and photojournalist Cristina Kessler showing how to write a nature journal (Jan. 15), linguist Elroy Sprauve explaining interest patterns and expressions and the history of language on St. John (Jan. 22), and professional photographer Steve (buy his book!) on how to use your camera to make underwater photos (Jan., 22). Session fees are $25-$70 for non-members of the Friends. Call 340-779-4940 to register.
