This one-of-a-kind race takes you on an adventure through one of the nation’s largest city parks by alternating between trail runs and a kayak or canoe leg on the reservoir. Beautiful scenery is guaranteed, along with some fun and competition, of course! All ages are welcome!

This is a counting books that counts animals seeking shelter from the storm. After we read the story, there are many rain and rainbow-themed activities to enjoy.

Since participants can move through the stations at their own pace, this program can accommodate a wide variety of ages, but it is most recommended for ages 2-6. This program is free with park admission and an adult must stay for the duration of the program. If the weather is nice, this program will meet at the EDC shelter. If the weather is too cold or windy, we will meet in the Earth Discovery Center.

Story Time will take place every Tuesday in August. Check out our Facebook events page to see the other titles.
