As the school year comes to a close, it doesn’t mean the learning needs to stop! Why not visit one of our Nature Centers to see the live animals and learn about the hidden gems in the parks and what makes each one unique. Join program staff and wade in the creek to turn over rocks and search for insects and fish living in our streams. You might spot colorful darters sometimes referred to as the warblers of the water. Our programs are advertised monthly on our website or you can follow your favorite park’s Facebook page for frequent updates.

If you are planning for summer fun, make sure Metro Parks is on your list! Be sure to come to 10TV and Metro Parks Outdoor Adventure at Highbanks on June 25th from 10am-4pm. We’ll have food trucks, climbing walls and obstacle courses, archery, live animals, and kids activities galore! Metro Parks are a great way to enjoy FREE fun with your whole family!
