The Friends of the Virgin Islands National Park has announced its schedule of winter seminars.
Among almost 40 sessions, from December through April, there are more than half a dozen workshops being offered for the first time. They include a private woodworking lesson from Avelino Samuel, a session with jazz drummer Eddie Bruce teaching ethnic drumming, and award-winning Trinidad Charlie showing how to make your own pepper sauce. Registration fees for the seminars go to benefit the Friends and the Park.
Participating in these classes is a double treat. Not only do you get the chance to learn something from an expert and get closer to the real St. John, but you also will meet other visitors as well as island residents.
