Foxfire Summer Heritage Days is a Heritage Skills event for children and/or families to have a hands-on experience with crafts such as blacksmithing, ropemaking, animal tracking, native plant identification and much more.
It's exciting to see so many adults signing up and enjoying these special days as well! What started out for children has grown and blossomed into a great memory maker for dating couples, vacationing friends, grands and their grandkids. We are looking forward to seeing our returning friends and making new ones this summer.
