Ready for Winter Walk and Craft
Bundle up and join the Park Naturalist on a walk looking for the signs of animals getting ready for Winter. We’ll observe and learn some facts and myths about animals (and plants) and their ability to predict the severity of the winter... After exploring the winter landscape we’ll head back inside for hands-on learning and a fun nature craft. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.

Spring Hollow Exploration
The Spring Hollow Reservoir holds 3.2 billion gallons of water and is used as an important drinking water source, but this protected space also serves as a haven for wildlife and natural beauty. Experience this watershed that is generally closed to the public with our partners from the Western Virginia Water Authority. We will begin with a five mile interpretive hike around the reservoir—including the opportunity to cross over the 990 foot long dam. Afterwards, we will tour the Spring Hollow Water Treatment Facility and learn more about our drinking water’s journey from the Roanoke River to the faucet. Please pack a lunch for the hike and a water bottle. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
