Looking for a way to enjoy the great outdoors this winter season?
Head down to the River Bends Park at the Burgess-Shadbush Nature Center for a variety of winter festivities designed for families with children ages 4 and up this Saturday, January 30 (11:00am-4:00pm). A plethora of activities will be offered for your enjoyment: a winter wildlife walk, wildlife programs, crafts, and games. Programs will showcase mammals in winter, as well as skulls, skins, scat, and live animals.
For the lunchtime cookout (11:00am-12:30pm), please bring hot dogs, drinks, chips, and other snacks to enjoy. The cookout will be followed by a marshmallow roast over a roaring bonfire.
Some games and activities will be snow dependent, and it certainly will be cold, so dress accordingly!
Cross country skis are welcome, but be cautioned that the trails are not groomed.
No registration is required, this is a walk-in only event. However, if you are part of a large group, or plan to bring a large group (such as scouts or other youth organizations), we do ask that you call in advance.
