Jeffers’ Bend Environmental Center is gearing up for NatureFest this Saturday and the public is invited to come enjoy nature and a slew of activities.
The outdoor festival will have over 40 vendors, educational programs and activities planned to happen that day from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. Charles Turner with Jeffers’ Bend says the only charges that day will be for entry to the park, which is free for military and first responders, and $2.50 to purchase a pumpkin.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Boys and Girls Club, Christian County Extension Office, Hopkinsville Electric System and other agencies. Diane Croney-Turner says the day is for the whole family to come and spend time together in nature.
Events planned include canoe rides, obstacle courses, soil tunnel, a nature carnival, educational programs about bees, water, gardens and there will be animals on site for kids to meet. For more information about the event, like the Jeffers’ Bend Environmental Center on Facebook.
