All ages welcome. Please dress for the weather and bring a chair/blanket to sit around the campfire.
Celebrate the shortest days of the year by learning how Piedmont critters adapt to these long and cold nights. We’ll discover signs of winter on a short nature walk, make paper lanterns to light up the night, and roast s’mores around the campfire while the sun starts to set.
