Schmeeckle Reserve's spring 2018 Candlelight Hike Festival will be Friday, May 4th, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Friends of Schmeeckle Reserve.
As you enjoy the warmth of spring, walk half-mile and one-mile loop torch-lit paths through the woods and along the lake.
The theme of
this spring's event is "May the Forest be with You." The plants have gotten tired of being eaten, and are rebelling against the animals.
Join us around the campfire at 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. as we watch the animals and plants try to restore balance to Schmeeckle's forest community.
Other events all evening include crafts, snacks, and hands-on Discovery Stations.
Admission is free, though a suggested donation of $2/person or $5/family will help fund future programs. All proceeds will go the Friends of Schmeeckle Reserve for future programs and improvements.
