Join us in celebrating the Christmas season with a variety of holiday themed activities.  Park entrance fees are WAIVED so everyone can enjoy these events!

Check out our event schedule:

Santa Hat Hike - 10 a.m., meet up at Island Trail for a ranger led walk.  Put on your favorite festive hat or ugly holiday sweater (or both) and take a short stroll along a park trail with a park ranger. Stretch your legs while learning about the native plants and animals that call the park home. (Weather Permitting)

Ornament Crafting - 1 p.m., join our park’s interpreter at the Education Center, where you can create holiday ornaments using natural materials. Make one to take home for your tree and make one to hang on the park’s Christmas tree.
