Fun with Mother Nature Offered at Hobbs State Park

Published Monday, January 20, 2020

It’s not every day that we observe Mother Nature. She’s careful regarding when she can be seen by humans. One of her favorite stops however, is Hobbs State Park.  Every 2nd Saturday of the month she drops in at the Park’s visitor center to tell timely stories to her little human friends. Readings begin at 10:30 a.m. Story time will be followed by “hands-on” nature-craft activities. Humans of all ages are welcome, however most stories target those 3-6 years of age.
