Free nature program at Atwood Park Nov. 16
Online Staff Report
Rockford Park District’s Atwood Center invites all ages to experience “In the Outdoors,” a series of free activities held one Saturday a month at the 334-acre Seth B. Atwood Park, 2685 New Milford School Road, Rockford.
Visitors will enjoy experiencing and learning about nature and aspects of the park through the variety of two-hour morning, afternoon, and evening outdoor and indoor programs.
The next session is scheduled for 2-4 p.m., Nov. 16, when Atwood Center staff will lead activities related to outdoor living skills. Participants will build a debris shelter, and learn the basics of fire-building; once the fires are going, there will be s’mores around the campfire.
This a drop-in program, with no registration required; groups of five or more are asked to phone ahead to notify staff.
More about Atwood programs, facility rentals, and group activities and retreats is available at www.rockfordparkdistrict.org/atwood. For more about accessibility and support for people with disabilities, call (815) 987-8800.
