10 Things to Do This Weekend in Middleburg, Virginia

— Our end-of-the-week picks for Feb. 2-4, including a talk by former NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Renee Stofan, Sunday Sketch at the National Sporting Library & Museum and watching the big game at Gold Cup Wine Bar.

Cocktails with Cupcake at Salamander Resort & Spa: Feb. 2 & 3 | 4-5 p.m.

Meet the newest (and sweetest) member of Salamander’s team, Cupcake! Our friend may be little in size but this miniature horse has a big personality. Each week she joins Salamander’s team in the living room to greet guests and welcome them to their home-away-from-home.

Observing Our Changing Planet

“Observing our Changing Planet from Space” at The Hill School: Feb. 2 | 6-7:30 p.m.

Over five decades of observing Earth from space has revealed the effects of our changing climate, from severe droughts to rising sea levels to more powerful storms. Climate change will affect all of our lives, but there is still time to act to avert the worst consequences of rising global temperatures. Come hear Dr. Ellen Renee Stofan, who recently served as a NASA chief scientist, serving as principal advisor to NASA Administrator Charles Bolden on the agency’s science programs and science-related strategic planning and investments. Sponsored by Land Trust of Virginia and the Goose Creek Association.
