Kids to Parks Day—that’s every day, right? Of course, but this year Bays Mountain Park is celebrating the official Kids to Parks Day on May 18.

Kids to Parks Day, launched in 2011, is a nationwide celebration of the great outdoors. It’s designed to connect kids and families with their local, state and national parks public lands. By discovering and exploring public lands, kids across the country can learn about stewardship and enjoy outdoor recreation. Teaching our kids to appreciate and enjoy public lands is a great way to foster future outdoor enthusiasts and create the next generation of park stewards and caretakers of these important places.

Visit Bays Mountain Park on May 18, 2019 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. for some great, kid-friendly activities. We’ll have interactive tables throughout the animal habitats marked with bright balloons from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. These tables will focus on many different topics: Bird Calls, Snakes, Frogs and Turtles, Beekeeping Life and more.

The park will also provide “Nature Neighbors – Spiders,” a program catered to children, in the Discovery Theater at 1 p.m. This program is $3 per person for non-members, and tickets will be available at the Nature Center gift shop on Kids to Parks Day.

Standard entrance fees and other park program fees apply.
