Enjoy a Super Spring Break day out at McFarland Park!
The day begins with Supe Spiders from 10:30AM-11:30 AM. Whether you think spiders are frightening or fantastic, you can learn some amazing things about these 8 legged creatures.
Next, make your lunch over a campfire (with adult assistance) in our Campfire Pi Making program from 11:30AM – 1 PM. Celebrate Pi Day (3/14) by making a delicious pizza pie and a dessert pie for your lunch over a campfire at McFarland. Our naturalists will assist you and all materials are provided.
