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.

Candlelight Hike – Ski – Snowshoe
Enjoy a romantic evening in the park by candlelight. The Rock County Parks Department will be bringing snowshoes for use that evening, and you are welcome to bring your own snowshoes, cross country skis or other equipment appropriate for the weather.
We will have a campfire with make-your-own s’mores and hot dogs available. Other refreshments include chili – both a meat and vegetarian version, homemade cookies, and hot chocolate. Bring your sweetheart, friends, the whole family, or just yourself and enjoy a beautiful night in the woods. The event will only be cancelled if there is high winds. Please call ahead if the conditions look iffy.
