Welty Fall Fest – Sunday Oct. 13
Bring the whole family out to Beckman Mill County Park for an afternoon of old-fashioned, outdoor fall fun! Included in your admission fee is making life-sized scarecrows, carving festive jack-o-lanterns, pressing fresh apple cider, making dried flower arrangements, and guided nature hikes through the oak savanna restoration, wetland boardwalk and woods trail.
Bakers are encouraged to bake a fruit or vegetable pie (no cream pies please) for judging. You could win a membership to the Friends of the Welty Environmental Center! Pies are sold by the piece after judging takes place at 12:30pm. Please bring a list of ingredients in your pie for people with food allergies.
Concessions will be available for sale at the event as well.

Teen Volunteer Naturalist Training
Are you between the ages of 13 and 17 years, love being outside and working with kids, and looking for a place to grow your talents? The Welty Environmental Center needs you!
You may need to complete a certain amount of service hours for graduation, so why not enjoy the experience.
Come to this training to get the basics of working outdoors and with children, and have a chance to have a say in this summer’s programming. All activities will be hands on and outdoors as much as possible, so dress accordingly. Bring a friend if you like. All participants will need to bring a lunch, but snacks are provided.
