Night Owls and Candle Magic (Nov. 19, 2022)
Saturday, Nov. 19, 2022
Bring the "night owls" in your family to enjoy the magic of a stroll along our luminary-lined trail as you learn about the late fall seasonal activities of our local owls. Bring your travel mug for hot cocoa and enjoy a lantern-lit craft project before you go home. FREE and for all ages (baby backpacks are recommended rather than strollers). No dogs, please. The last "stroll" at Night Owls and Candle Magic begins at 8:30 p.m. Perfect for Jr. Park Explorers, families, adults, Scouts and Y groups! No preregistration is needed for this evening event.
