• Message from the Director

      As fall begins to reach its conclusion, the cooler days have lent themselves to some really enjoyable days in the Parks.  Many people feel this is the best time to enjoy the outdoors as wildlife are scurrying about preparing for winter, the leaves are changing and the crisp air brings bright blue skies.  

      We had an outstanding Fall Farm Fest as over 14,000 people enjoyed Lost Creek Reserve in its full splendor of kid’s activities, farm demonstrations, the corn maze, good food and GREAT weather.  If you were not able to make it, place it on your calendar next year for October 8-9.

      I hope you will be able to enjoy the great fall colors at Your Parks the next few weeks.  Get out real soon, because the leaves will be gone before you know it.  The color this year has been good so far and visitors have enjoyed it.  We have had some outstanding pictures taken this fall.  I hope you have enjoyed them on our Facebook and Instagram page. See you in the Parks!
