Event description

Description

What is happening in fall in Dix Park? Join us for a guided nature hike and we'll look at what animals and plants are doing to prepare for winter. We'll look at bird migration, changing leaves, invasive plants, and even what reptiles might still be out.

Dress for the weather with closed toe shoes and bring your binoculars or borrow ours.

All ages, under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

What to Bring

Bring your own binoculars or borrow ours.

Please Note: There are no bathrooms in the park and no drinkable water, so please plan to bring a water bottle and come prepared to only have portajohns available. Walking in grass and up and down hills may be necessary.
