Shotgun - 5-Stand

EVERY FRIDAY FROM APRIL 1 TO AUGUST 27.

What is 5-Stand? It’s a great way to improve on your shotgun shooting skills! This combination of trap, skeet, and sporting clays affords the challenge of all three games but with less walking. Bring your friends and your favorite shotgun and experience the fun of this game. No registration required. WEATHER PERMITTING!

Fishing Skills

Cane poles are primitive but they are also fun and easy for anyone to use. Especially for young children who aren't sure how to handle rod and reel combos yet. Almost anyone can master a cane pole in just a few minutes.

Come out to Prairie Hollow Educational Lake, learn how to build a cane pole and then try your luck with this trusty but ancient equipment that's been catching big fish for thousands of years. All ages are welcome and adults are encouraged to grab a pole and fish along with the kids.

Insects

Registration required for each participating (all ages)

Native pollinators are amazing and a vital part of nature! Join a naturalist to search for these cool critters around the nature center, play a game to learn the three key parts of great bee habitat and take a native plant home (1 per household).

Check in for program at bleachers in front of the nature center.
