Outbound: Snowflake Local Living Festival

This is the time of year that we need to be making more concerted efforts to head outside, to explore the great outdoors. The wintertime is a beautiful time of year to nature watch. The snow brings out all sorts of creatures, in magical settings, from the smallest of burrowing creatures to the predators that soar overhead.

On Saturday, February 2, from 10 AM to 4 PM, the Audubon Community Nature Center invites children and adults to visit with live animals, including hawks and owls. 

Aside from the wonders of the animals, visitors are welcome to participate in hands-on activities – some of the activities held in previous years include grinding corn for cornmeal, making butter, creating walking sticks, weaving, and stamping leather bracelets.

The Snowflake Local Living Festival teaches people how to be more sustainable. It shows families how much fun it can be to get away from their electronic gadget lifestyles. 

Attendees to the festival can experience snowshoe trials, sled dogs pulling sleds, and winter hikes with naturalists. Other activities include making a nest box for wildlife or taking a wagon ride available (for an a nominal fee). People can event taste test maple syrup, and learn how to cook over a fire!
