This free event welcomes veterans and their families as the public. Festivities will center around the Pavilion Grove Shelter from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Families can join guided hikes along the Gorge Trail and paved trail, and learn how to throw a spear with an atlatl, or spear-throwing tool, too! Be sure to cozy around the fire and build some tasty s’mores – all of the fixins will be available for everyone, plus light refreshments and lawn games.
Veterans are honored year-round at Great Parks! Veterans get special offers on Motor Vehicle Permits, golf, fishing, and boat and campsite rentals. Learn more at greatparks.org.
*** Note: November 11 marks their special Community Day; families can drive into the 22 parks and conservation areas of Great Parks without purchasing a Motor Vehicle Permit. ***
