Kids Discover: Hide and Seek in Nature

Kids love to find things outdoors and nature is great at hiding. Your 1- to 7-year-old will hear a story about camouflage, observe some creatures that hide in nature and play a game to find things hidden in the woods. This nature hunt takes place on March 12, 11 a.m.-noon, at the Cypress Shelter at Harris Lake County Park in New Hill. The fee is $4 per child and advance registration is required.
