Pickering Creek Audubon Center in Easton will debut its Thanksgiving Kids’ Interactive Trail on Friday, November 19. The trail circles Pickering Creek Pond and features 11 stops that encourage kids and families to explore nature through short fun activities.
The trail is self-guided and starts at the center’s main parking lot. At the stops, it asks kids to do interactive activities like: hop like a rabbit down the trail; if you see a Hawk or Eagle overhead, freeze until it passes. Each location asks students to engage a different sense as they explore nature around them.
“This is a great way to explore the fall season as a family while engaging kids and giving adults a chance to stretch their legs and walk off some of the Thanksgiving feast,” says Pickering Creek Director Mark Scallion. The trail will be in place from Friday, November 19 through Sunday, December 4. Keep an eye on the weather and remember boots if it has been rainy.
After enjoying the kids’ interactive trail, further explorations lie beyond, with over four miles of trails and several beautiful vistas over Pickering Creek, as well as the center’s expansive wetlands, Pickering Creek Audubon Center has miles of trails for exploration and enjoyment.
Pickering Creek’s trails are open daily from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the winter months. For guidelines, visit https://pickering.audubon.org/visit/planning-visit.
