Earth Day Kids’ Nature Walk
April 21 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm$5.00
Celebrate Earth Day outdoors with us on the trails at Foxfire! Join us for a gentle hike for young naturalists of all ages as we explore our natural surroundings together. We’ll look and listen for birds and bugs, identify trees and useful plants, hunt for mushrooms and animals tracks, and play in the brand new children’s cabins at Foxfire. Kids will also get to make a special nature-inspired keepsake to commemorate Earth Day 2023.
Participants should feel comfortable walking at a gentle pace. Please wear closed-toe shoes with socks and long pants/sleeves to protect against poison ivy and insects. Feel free to bring a water bottle, notebook and pen, backpack, brimmed hat, light rain jacket, bug spray, sun protection, your favorite guidebook, and anything else you may need to feel comfortable outdoors.
