Fall Fest is all about the critters that spend the fall preparing for winter, including an "opossum crawl" obstacle course, at the Woodlands Nature Station at Land Between the Lakes. Photo provided by LBL.
Woodlands Nature Station will host Fall Fest on Saturday, November 3, from 10 am - 4 pm. Nature Station admission is $5 ages 13 and up, $3 ages 5-12, free for ages 4 and under.
Fall Fest 2018’s theme, “Workin’ for the Winter!” will focus on local critters that do not migrate and spend the fall preparing for winter. There will be games and activities for all ages to learn about these hard workers. Enjoy hayrides, live craft demonstrations and music, and games to celebrate these industrious animals.
“This is an excellent opportunity for the whole family to enjoy the fall season and participate in outdoor programs and activities,” says Tim Johnson, Naturalist at Woodlands Nature Station.
Hayrides are 40-minutes long, $2 per person, and leave regularly throughout the day. See if you can spot any animals preparing for winter!
