Nature Walk in Filley Park for All Ages (Aug. 13 @ 11:00 AM) (Meet at Prosser!)

Members of the Filley Park Committee will join us to provide a little history about the park and help in identifying some of the trees and more, and we’ll all take part in a mini scavenger hunt! All attendees will receive a complimentary reusable water bottle. Children will also receive a nature journal and magnifying glass to take with them on our nature walks. We will meet at Prosser Library (1 Tunxis Avenue) in the Children’s Room, fill up our water bottles, and then head over to Filley Park on foot. This gentle walk is perfect for families and kids/adults of all ages! Read more >

We promise to bring the fun and the Smore’s! Read more >
