Festival soon to spring back into Reston
April 27, 2013 by James
The Spring Festival is returning to the Walker Nature Education Center early this May.
This annual festival is a family friendly celebration of nature, including plenty of hands-on activities for people of all ages, such as children’s crafts, canoe and kayak rentals on Lake Audubon, face painting, carnival games, live entertainment, fishing, food concessions, and displays from local environmental groups. It will be a great way to introduce the children to the wonders of nature and for families to have some outdoor fun together.
No doubt the displays from local Reston environmental groups will feature informative literature printed by local printing companies. The organizations might want to design and create a brochure or booklet which describes exactly what they do and how the general public can help them to achieve their goals.
The Walker Nature Education Center is open year round from Wednesday through Monday. It is located across 1,300 acres and provides some of the best trails in the area. The center also offers programs of interest to children and adults.
The success of the event is largely dependent upon the contribution of its volunteers, and those who feel they can contribute something towards this year’s festival, even if only for a couple of hours, are encouraged to get involved.
The Spring Festival will take place next Saturday, May 4, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Admission is free. For more information, or to volunteer, call Ha Brock of the Walker Nature Education Center at 703-435-7986.
