Spots Still Open for Our Hoot N Howl Hayride and Other October Programs

October is a fantastic time to join the City’s Parks & Natural Resources Department, through their Natural Resources Division, to get outdoors. Programs include hayrides, campfires, and fun with animals. Programs will continue to follow up-to-date social distancing and gathering guidelines.

Join us on a crisp fall night at Bloomer Park for our Hoot N Howl Hayride with available spots left for our Friday, October 16th session 7:30 - 9:00 pm. Register by Wednesday 10/14 at Visitors will enjoy a hayride through the woods with our Naturalists to look for nocturnal wildlife like deer, raccoons and owls. Then, participants will take a stop at other sites in the park for a crackling campfire and to meet a few live animals. Masks will be required during hayride portion and when social distancing is not possible. This event is great for adults, families and children of all ages and is in no way intended to be scary.

Other upcoming programs in October include programs listed below. To register or to learn about our other upcoming Outdoor Engagement Opportunities later this fall, visit our website or call the Parks & Natural Resources Dept. at 248-656-4673.
