Horse-Drawn Hayrides, Guided Night Hikes, Raptor Show, Children’s Crafts, And Much More!
Experience the changing seasons at Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve while enjoying the thrills and traditions of autumn at this family oriented event, Harvest Festival & Hayrides on October 27 from 3-9:00 p.m. Horse-drawn hayrides will carry you through Wesselman Park while you learn about nature preparing for winter. Meanwhile several of the Preserve’s inhabitants–including our raptors and reptiles – are waiting to meet you at Odonata Pond in the Nature Preserve.
Take a guided hike through the woods at night to listen for wildlife and see an after-hours side of the Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve rarely seen by visitors. Hands-on learning experiences abound at this event with stargazing, insect identification, sensory games, and more. Enjoy our seasonal concessions for purchase.
All proceeds will be used to help support the educational and nature related programs Wesselman Nature Society provides throughout the year. The event costs $6 a person, or $20 per family (max. 5 people). Children 3 & under are free. For more information call (812) 479-0771 ext. 102, or email [email protected].
