Lots To Do At Tugaloo State Park This Weekend

Oftentimes in the Winter months, it can be a challenge finding something to do.  But with sunny skies and highs in the mid-50’s forecasted for the first part of the weekend, Saturday will be a great day to get out and explore nature.

There are three events going on that day at Tugaloo State Park worth checking out.
On Saturday beginning at noon, bring the whole family to the nature hut as Ranger Alex Reno will present “Radical Reptiles.”  “Radical Reptiles” is a time when visitors can learn about the native snakes and other reptiles living at Tugaloo State Park.  Kids can win prizes in the snake trivia contest even meet some of the actual snakes residing at the park.

Then at 2:00 p.m., Ranger Reno will present “Dim The Lights for the Birds At Night.”  This is a discussion about the harmful effects of light pollution on migratory birds and how people can minimize the effects of light pollution on our feathery friends.

The third and final event is “Firemaking 101.” It will be held at firepit at the Tugaloo State Park amphitheater at 4:00 p.m.  There, participants will learn a variety of firemaking tips along with fire safety.

There is the $5 parking fee plus a $2 fee for people who wish to attend “Firemaking 101.”  All other activities are free.  If you have any questions, call Tugaloo State Park at 706-356-4362.
