Nature Day at Shawnee Prairie

What better time to celebrate nature than Earth Day weekend? This year we have so much packed into Nature Day; we’ve extended the time! Nature Day will be on Saturday, April 26th from 10:00am-3:00pm at Shawnee Prairie Preserve (4267 State Route 502 West). The Park will be a flurry of FREE activities , LIVE animals and information from beginning to end. Stations will be scattered throughout the trails surrounding the Nature Center encouraging admiration of all things Nature. Children will have the opportunity to have their “passport” stamped at each station for a prize. A snake, turtle, hawk and owl will be walking the trails and Brukner Nature Center will join the fun by adding an opossum, bat and a flying squirrel to the mix.

Entertainer extraordinaire, Chris Rowlands, will be joining us for a FREE concert at 12:00pm. Chris is a Naturalist Teacher for Aullwood Audubon Center, bringing music and life-size puppets to the stage for the benefit of children and adults alike! The Native Plant Sale is BACK! Select plants will be available for sale during Nature Day. The Friends of the Park will also be serving a low cost, hotdog lunch from 11am-1pm. Come on out to Shawnee Prairie for this FREE festival and let’s celebrate nature!
