Bear Creek Lake SP National Kids to Parks Day

Celebrate National Kids to Parks Day with park-wide events and activities for the whole family.

Date(s):

Saturday, May 19, 2018 8:00 am

Overview:

Start with a Discovery Hike at 10 a.m. We'll meet at the Lakeside Diner, head out to meet the forest, and spy what we can spy. The hike will last about 60 minutes over moderate terrain. Comfortable walking shoes and bottled water suggested. At 2 p.m. come by the Legacy Wayside at the beach area and learn about the history of the Wayside, and the wildlife and plants to be found around the park. We'll have a table set up with nature items to help you understand how plant and animal species are each unique in their own way, just like each of us. At 6:30 p.m., join in the Great Nose Flute Revival at the Acorn Loop Shelter campfire.

If you prefer, enjoy our self-guided activities such as GPS Adventures, or the Channel Cat Interpretive Loop Trail all day and every day. Drop a line in the lake. No fishing license required for those under sixteen years of age.

All the programs are free today, so bring your kids out and play.
