Sherwood Forest values spontaneity. When the rare “Blue Ghost” fireflies are visible in DuPont Forest, a caravan of cars may leave at dusk to observe them. If a houseguest from Scotland has special talents, he’ll find himself headlining the soup supper, playing bagpipes and explaining how they work. If someone finds a box turtle, it is marked and becomes part of a regional study. (The finder gets to name the turtle). And no one was much surprised one week, when a Korean potter took center stage at the Barn to demonstrate his art, accompanied simultaneously by his wife, an interpretative dancer. The local Sherwood Forest Friends organization sponsors many varied special arts and science programs for the surrounding local community in our Robin Hood Barn each summer.
