Forestival highlights A Studio in the Woods' programs and surrounding environment, and it features art, music, dance, kids' activities and more. Sunpie and the Louisiana Sunspots top the musical bill and there are performances by students from the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts and Martin Berhman Charter School Academy of Creative Arts and Sciences. Recent resident artists present their work, including Jane Hill's display of clay work and choreographer Monique Moss' Katrina Cranes, and there is a second-line parade with giant puppets made by Nina Nichols. Staff botanist David Baker leads a tour of the woods.

  A Studio in the Woods is affiliated with Tulane University and it offers residencies for writers and visual and performing artists. The center is located on 7.7 acres of bottomland hardwood forest, and there is programming based on environmentalism and nature studies. — WILL COVIELLO
