- Message from the Director
With the warmer weather, it is the perfect time to get outside and get healthy, both physically and mentally. A sure way to reduce stress is a little retail therapy in a beautiful, natural setting at the Art Fair
located at Hobart Urban Nature Preserve on May 11. Our annual Art Fair is a great place to shop for yourself or the perfect Mother’s Day Gift while enjoying a little food and music.
For those who like outdoor adventure, we have the ever-popular Hug the Earth Festival
on May 18 at Stillwater Prairie Reserve. This fun, family festival is a great place to get ideas on what your family can do outdoors. There will be a rock wall, tree climbing, zip line and more. It is also the grand opening of the new Natural Play Area.
When talking about health, we can’t leave out the 2013 Trail Run Challenge
. You don’t have to be an avid runner to participate in this series of races. Walking or running in the trail series is a great way to get exercise and improve physical well-being.
I hope to see you in Your Parks!!

Volunteers arrived early on a beautiful Spring morning to plant trees and build fences around those trees at the Miami Count...
