In today’s busy world, it’s all too easy to forget the pleasures of simple living.  The Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center (DPNC) is offering a new workshop series for 2015 that brings the focus back to the basics.

Join us for programs that teach the life skills many of us lack in the modern age.  Experience the delicious excitement of making your own cheese from scratch, or of cooking a hot meal over a campfire.  Attend the leatherworking program and leave with your own handmade leather wallet.  Learn how to make your own soap from Farmer Brie of Terra Firma Farm!

Join us for one or more of the exciting new programs in the Back to Basics series, and treat yourself to some valuable life skills.
