​It’s Pecan Picking and Turkey Time at Wake County Parks

Sample of programs available at Wake County Parks in November

Thanksgiving traditions and fall fun are coming to Wake County Parks this November. Each month, Wake County Parks, Recreation and Open Space hosts programs that give visitors of all ages the opportunity to learn about animals and nature, park history and much more. The following is a sample of the programs scheduled for the month.

Nature Lab: Fall Discoveries
Wednesday, Nov. 22, 10 a.m.–2 p.m.
Harris Lake County Park
Fall is a great time to explore the woods and shoreline for signs of nature such as tracks, nests, beautiful leaves and interesting seeds.  In this program, participants ages 6 to 11 years old can collect treasures from nature and use them to create a craft in the afternoon. Bring a full water bottle, snack and a bag lunch. The program fee is $16 per child, and preregistration is required. Meet at the Cypress Shelter. Harris Lake County Park is located at 2112 County Park Drive, New Hill.
