Take this opportunity to celebrate Wildwood Park. Discover the park's three wildlife initiatives: turtle research, bird banding, and monarch butterfly tagging. For a small fee you can paint a pumpkin, stuff a scarecrow, or enjoy fresh caramel apples. New this year, Friends of Wildwood will hold a used book sale. Browse field guides, nature books, and children's books. A Friends of Wildwood members-only pre-sale will begin at 11am.
This year, award-winning children’s entertainer Ray Owen will have four awesome shows throughout the event:
12:30 pm – Animal Odyssey
1:45 pm – Old McDonald, The Organic Farmer
2:30 pm – Splash, The Clean Water Dude
3:15 pm – Celebration of the Great Outdoors
The day includes the Walk for Wildwood. This free 5K walk/run for families, exercise enthusiasts, dog walkers, and runners, is a fundraiser for the Friends of Wildwood, whose mission is to support and preserve the park. Donations at www.wildwoodlake.org.
