Every Saturday evening at 7:15 p.m., join area naturalists at outdoor park amphitheaters for a variety of engaging nature programs. Each program runs 45 minutes and will present live creatures, facts, and/or exhibits for hands-on, family learning. Program topics include animal adaptations, bats, bird banding, bugs, dragonflies, frogs, hawks, owls, snakes, raptors, wolves, and much more!

All campfire programs are FREE to campers and visitors with a vehicle permit ($5/day or $25/annual). Programs are at the outdoor amphitheater within the park and include a bonfire (when conditions allow). Bench seating and grassy areas are available, however, visitors are more than welcome to bring camp chairs and blankets for comfort.

Camping reservations are available, but not required to attend campfire programs.
