At the end of the month, the Common Ground Center in Starksboro celebrates the opening of the Eco-Lodge, a new structure that complements its existing family-camp facilities. Started in 1994, the Common Ground Center provides programs for families of all kinds, including those dealing with high-conflict divorce, autism-spectrum disorders and adoption. The traditional camp includes classes for adults and children in art, music, healing arts and nature.

The new Eco-Lodge houses 30 occupants with eight guest rooms and a large common room, which will allow the center to offer year-round programming. Its design stresses energy-conserving construction and incorporates wood harvested on site and milled locally. Environmentalist and author Bill McKibben will speak at the opening ceremonies. Visitors can also enjoy music, activities for kids, brick-oven pizza and tours of the new building.

Eco-Lodge at the Common Ground Center: Grand-opening dedication ceremony, Sunday, April 30, Starksboro. Info, 453-2592.
