Holiday Family Nature Exploration Day

December 1, 2012 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Sugar Grove Nature Center invites you to take time out during the busy holiday season to relax and enjoy the nature in Funks Grove. The Nature Center will be decked out for the holidays and the chilly winter ahead. Visit the wildlife viewing room to watch the birds dine on our buffet of bird seed, suet, and other tasty treats. Take a winter nature walk at 11:00 a.m., and then warm up with some hot chocolate. See what was left in our critters’ stocking for them to eat at 1:00 p.m. A holiday make-and-take craft will be available all day.

Boys and girls of all ages are invited to write their letters to Santa and drop them off in a special mailbox located along our Imagination Grove trail. The critters of Funks Grove will then promptly deliver them. Be sure to pick up some food to offer the animals as a “thank you.” Even if you are unable to attend Family Nature Exploration Day, the animals will be accepting and delivering Letters to Santa up until Christmas Even from dawn until dusk, even when the Nature Center isn’t open. Make this one of your Christmas traditions!

Whatever you do this winter, remember to enjoy the season for is unique gifts.
And, thank you for being a friend of Sugar Grove Nature Center.
