Join us as we begin a spring series of monthly open-house-style programming featuring a variety of themes and activities for the entire family! Each event includes an engaging presentation, crafts for the kids and a guided/self-paced night walk on the boardwalk. We end each evening around an old-fashioned campfire with songs and of course s’mores! Bring your own seating to enjoy the fire! Space is limited as we follow CDC recommended guidelines. For more info, contact or call 972-474-9100.
