Upcoming Event

Naturalist Presentation – Horsing Around

May 4 | 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


Get ready for our annual Derby Day event! Gallop to the Naturalist’s Cabin to brush, groom and learn all about equines on this day of historic horse races. A very gentle live horse will be available for kids to pet, examine, and discover. Children will learn about safety around horses and also discover the features that make a horse’s body so amazing. Brushes and supplies will be on hand. Visitors are welcome to bring their own apples, carrots or sugary treats for the horse. Check your pantry for stale cereals or breads – they are a perennial pony favorite!

Although all interactions will be closely guided by Marianne, please assist in supervising your child in this activity.

Call Naturalist Marianne Hudson at 256-496-2710 with any questions. No charge!
