Carpenter's Rock Hike 10:30-11:30am
Let's meet at the Nature Center and take the climb up to Carpenter's Rock. The view from the top will be well worth the adventure of trudging up the steep hills. Compare and contrast how Wells State Park looks today compared to 400 years ago! Bug spray, sunscreen, and water, is highly recommended. This program is geared for all ages.
Nature Center Open House, 2-4pm
Come by the Nature Center to see what we have! Discovery Backpacks are available to explore the park. See displays of animal skulls and owl pellets, and even listen to some bird calls.
Wildlife at Wells, 4-5pm
We will take a stroll on Mill Pond trail and look for signs of wildlife. Maybe if we are really lucky we will actually see a beaver or blue heron! Bug spray, sunscreen, and water, is highly recommended. This program is geared for all ages.
All programs are free for campers and open to the public for a $2 parking fee. An adult must accompany children. Call 508-347-9257 for more information.
