Event Details

Plan a break from the books to learn about nature and get your kids outside. We will discuss a nature topic and then explore the woods and prairie. Kids that spend time in nature are happier, healthier, and smarter!


Have you ever heard of the Indiana Banana? The Pawpaw tree, native to Indiana, will have ripening fruit in early fall. There’s a secret Pawpaw patch in the park. We’ll learn about the tree, possibly sample some fruit, and you’ll go home with some recipes.
