The Riverline and the Land Conservancy are giving people a taste of what it’s going to be like, when the nature trail and greenway (on a former rail corridor) opens to the public. Not only will people be able to walk and bike the trail, which connects the Cobblestone District to the Buffalo River (at RiverBend), there will also be plenty of fun and educational programming.
The Riverline will become an inspiring gathering place that connects people to water, nature, and one another by providing fun, family-oriented events like this one.
On Saturday, September 24, some of that “fun and educational” programming will commence, as a Free Family Fun Day will get underway, featuring:
- Kid-friendly art workshops
- Family fun activities including a butterfly tagging and release (weather permitting) thanks to Eastern Monarch Butterfly Farm
- Bio-blitz scavenger hunt (Bio-blitz start times: 9:30 a.m. & 10:30 a.m.)
- The first 50 guests will be able to make their own fruit smoothies by riding a bicycle with Connie’s Ed-U-Kitchen
- The English Gardener will have an exhibit of native plants and will be on hand to chat to people about why planting natives is important
The Free Family Fun Day will give families and nature lovers an opportunity to participate in interactive workshops and events that will shine a light on the future of this spectacular trail. Be sure to register for this free event!
