Upcoming Events This Weekend!

FAMILY CAMP OUT

Next camp out in August: August 18th Sign up HERE>>
Every month now through October, we will have two Friday campouts per month. This will allow you to come and pitch a tent, enjoy S’mores and a fire pit, come inside and pet the animals and have bedtime stories. You can come to the Nature Center lawn and pitch your tent at 4:00pm, but we don’t light the fire until around 7:00pm. Kids have night games in the lawn and, when the weather is hot, we get out all of the water toys. If you want to come and enjoy the evening but don’t have the camping equipment we would love to have you. Costs are only $10.00 per family. These costs remain the same if you camp out or not as they cover the wood and marshmallows.

FLICKS IN THE STICKS

Final Movie of the Season: Rogue One – Saturday, August 19  – 8:30 pm
Bring a picnic dinner – or pick up something from one of the great local restaurants – and stake out your spot on the lawn. Coolers, lawn chairs*, and picnic blankets are welcome. Free popcorn and drinks are provided. This is a popular event, so come early for a good seat! Movies will begin shortly after sundown – as soon as it’s dark. The times listed are approximate. Reservations not required. In the event of inclement weather, check the website to see if this event is cancelled or rescheduled. Parents, you’ll find links to the Parental Guidance from IMDB below for your review.  Click for More Details>>
