A quick congratulations to all of the recent graduates of The Central Blue Ridge Chapter of the Virginia Master Naturalist Program. Peter Agelasto pictured on the far right along with his wife Betsy and all of the others recently completed the course. He passed this on to us. They are all now Master Naturalists in training! Think I even see Linda Heuer in the group too!

Peter also adds:

Graduation was Nov 17. The next step is 8 hours of advanced training and 40 hours of volunteer service on projects offered by the partners. Rockfish Valley Foundation will be offering an invasive plant removal project followed by a native plant installation project.

The local partners in our Blue Ridge Chapter are Rockfish Valley Foundation, Friends of Rockffish Watershed, Wintergreen Nature Foundation, Wildlife Center of Virginia, nature Camp, USDOF- Blue Ridge parkway and USDOF -Sherando. Michael Lachance is the chapter advisior . He is the Nelson Extension agent.

Again, a big congrats to all of the recent graduates!

A quick look at the next 24-36 hours. Showers began in some portions of the area overnight, mainly south. As the day wears on look for scattered showers to move into Central Virginia. Like I mentioned in Wednesday’s cast, this is not going to be a big rainmaker. We have a much better organized system headed our way by early next week, that promised better chances. But we’ll certainly see showers early today as a cold front works through. The big story will be the falling temperatures and windy conditions later today.

We’ll start out the day fairly mild with showers, but the afternoon brings gusty winds along with falling temperatures. This evening will be a great time to be inside by the fire!
