Hey kids, turn off the television, put away the video games, and head over to

11 to Noon: Follow the Tracks
Ever wonder what made those footprints you see when hiking a trail? Join us to explore animal signs of all kinds. We'll check out our track boxes to see if we've caught a paw print of a critter walking by.

Ride along with the interpreter as we explore some of the wildlife found here at the lake. Rides are free but seating is limited, so please get your ticket to reserve a seat. Tickets will be available at the Discovery Center starting at 1 pm.

Test out your knowledge on animal tracks while playing an exciting bingo game. Other fun games and activities on tracks will be available.
