Pond Critters will have you discovering what lives in and around Green Hill Pond. You will use dip nets to try and catch some critters and talk about what they are. This program is free. Animal Tracks is a program that is great for kids of all ages. You will identify some common animal tracks, then make a plaster animal track to take home. The tracks take about four hours to dry, so please make sure you will be around the park long enough after the program to pick up your track.

The Backyard Bass program shows that fishing can be a very relaxing and equally exciting hobby, but it’s also an important part of wildlife management. This program is for younger guests who may want to learn how to fish for the first time. Participants will learn about casting and other key components, followed by a game to test how well participants can cast. This program is free.
