Looking to enjoy some quality time outdoors with the family? Get adventurous at the Great Outdoor Weekend, offering more than 100 free events for families this month. Here are three of our favorites.
Farm Encounters Walk
You’ll receive a farmer’s education at Gorman Heritage Farm while tasting veggies fresh from the garden, seeing animals in their pastures, feeding chickens, and exploring historic buildings. Come dressed and ready to walk the farm paths. 10:30 a.m.–noon September 25. 10052 Reading Rd., Evendale, (513) 967-0058
Senses in the Dark
Explore Rentschler Forest MetroPark at night during this interactive nature walk. You won’t need to bring a flashlight, as you’ll be using your own “night vision” to spot nature peeking out in the dark. Open to all ages. 7:30–9 p.m. September 25 (registration is required by September 24). 5701 Reigart Rd., Hamilton, (513) 867-5835
Winged Nature Walk
Hiking boots? Check. Water bottle? Check. Wings? Kids and adults alike will don wings from birds, butterflies, fairies, and other favorite creatures for a creative outdoor trail walk hosted by YourGo2Girl Youth Entertainment. A picnic follows (bring your own basket and blanket). 10 a.m.–2 p.m. September 26. Civic Garden Center, 2715 Reading Rd., Avondale, (513) 406-7680
