Our next Seniors on the Go excursion takes us to A Studio in the Woods. This program of Tulane University’s Bywater Institute is located on 7.66 acres on the Mississippi River in New Orleans. It is dedicated to preserving the endangered bottomland hardwood forest and providing within it a peaceful retreat where artists and scholars can work uninterrupted.

Managing Director Ama Rogan will speak about ASITW's artistic and scholarly residencies and programming. Environmental Curator David Baker will lead a guided walk through the woods detailing the native flora and fauna as well as his work to eradicate invasive species on the property.

Bring your own brown bag lunch and drink. We will enjoy a picnic together after the tour.

Attendees should wear woods-friendly attire and footwear. There is no charge for the bus, thanks to a generous donation from Morris Bart. There is a suggested donation of $10 per person for ASTITW. RSVP by Monday, December 11 to Rachel Ruth at 897-0143.

Here are some alternative ways to celebrate this holiday
