Joining wildlife at the dinner table

May 2, 2013 by  

This month’s ‘Wild Lunch – Animal Feeding at the Park’ will let families come out and watch the animals, housed in the Nature Center, having their lunch. Families will be able to see a large box turtle chomp down on some savory salad, among some other incredible dining habits.

Families will be treated to first-hand viewing as the various animals eat their lunch. There are many hands-on items to explore after the feeding period ends, including rocks, shells, furs, and bones from a number of animals.

Children and their parents will also see a selection of activities including a mystery box, quizzes designed to challenge, and a selection of programmed activities that include skulls, snakes, bugs, bats, spiders, and plants.

All the programming at the Nature Center is designed with the family in mind and is geared to be age appropriate. There is also an area in which families can borrow educational information and equipment from the park. In the lower level, a number of historic photos can be previewed.

Admission is the price to enter the park, and passers-by can probably expect to see examples of poster printing drawing attention to this special opportunity. It will be happening on Saturday, May 18, from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Nature Center in Devil’s Lake State Park located at 55975 Park Road in Baraboo, Wisconsin. To learn more about this event, please visit the Devil’s Lake State Park website or call its office at 608-356-8301 during business hours.
