Spirits and Sloths: A Day in Luray

Saturday, April 6, 2019

Register by Friday, March 29, 2019.

Meet at Watkins Nature Center for a day trip to Luray, Virginia, for a unique adventure! First, visit the Luray Zoo to see a bevy of retired zoo animals, unwanted pets, confiscations, and rescued animals in this surprisingly lively sanctuary.

Next, enjoy lunch at the Speakeasy Bar and Restaurant (each person is responsible for their own lunch). This establishment gives you a look into prohibition-area Shenandoah while you enjoy a casual meal. Finally, round off the day with a trip to the River Hill Distillery, where we will be treated to a distillery tour, followed by a wine and whiskey tasting, with the opportunity to buy from their line of locally sourced spirits.

Bring money for lunch, gift shop, and spirits if desired.
