The Macon County Conservation District is gearing up for outdoor programs that look to get new and exciting nature aspects in front of the kiddos’ eyes. On December 16th, the Raccoon Candy Cane Kids Hike will take place at 10:00 a.m., then the Preschool Bird Watching program will take place the next day, December 17th at 2:00 p.m.
Both programs will be held at the Rock Springs Nature Center Located at 3939 Nearing Lane in Decatur. Registration for both the hike and the bird watching are required and can be found at the Macon County Conservation District Website.
Jerry Culp, Executive Director for the Macon County Conservation District, says these events are fun for the kids and even if no raccoons are spotted, there will still be treats to pick up along the way.
There are still many species of birds to watch and learn about during this season. The Preschool Bird Watching Program looks to educate the youth on the local and seasonal birds and their patterns.
Registration for these outdoor programs can be found at www.maconcountyconservation.org/nature-camps-for-kids/registering-for-camps/.
