38th Annual Family Nature Day - White Memorial
38th Annual Family Nature Day
September 28, 2019 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm
Our annual celebration of Mother Nature is a must for folks of all ages. This 38th edition is chock full of the greatest presenters! Brain Bradley will be here with his beautiful free-flying hawks and falcons. Riverside Reptiles’ Brian Kleinman is perhaps the greatest mind in reptiles in our state. Come visit the many friends he’ll be bringing along. Visit with Creature Teachers and their beautiful array of animals found right in your back yard! Meet a Bald Eagle, Golden Eagle, and more with Horizon Wings Raptor Rehabilitation and Education Center! Lisa Monacelli from Stamford Nature Center will teach you about (and FEED YOU) Edible Insects! Music will be provided by Ian Campbell and The Boxcar Lilies. The day is filled with live animals, guided nature walks, information booths, horse drawn wagon rides, and yummy food provided by The Litchfield Lions Club, South County Crepes, Hardcore Cupcakes, Cups and Cones Ice Cream, and Maple Treats from Winter Wind Farm. Shop until you drop at the artisans market. Get in a bidding war at our silent auction. Lots of nature crafts for the kiddies too! Will you be the winner of a trip for two to Iceland ( donated by Krummi Travel LLC) with Gerri Griswold in June 2020 or luxuriating for two nights at the incomparable Winvian? Take three friends and spend an evening camping with the wolves at the New York Wolf Conservation Center! Those are the three prizes up for grabs in our annual raffle! So much to do! Feed your mind, body, and soul! 11:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M., Admission: $6.00, Center Members and children under 12 are FREE!
