Event details

This ongoing event will be held from Wednesday, Feb. 1, to Sunday, Feb. 26. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays to Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays.

Stop by the nature center during business hours to color your best oak tree. Add in your own special touches and creative creatures. Even in the winter oak trees can be full of life. Will your tree be quiet and still, full of bright colors, or a home to raccoons, squirrels, and owls? Feel free to take the coloring sheet home to spend more time on your creation.

All entries are due by 4 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 26. Nature center staff will vote on the top three coloring creations to win a stuffed animal surprise. Winners will be notified during the second week of March.
