6th Annual Santa Rosa Creek Week Celebration is here!
This year’s Family Fun Day is Saturday, September 26th.
On Sunday the 20th relax and revive with a Destination Yoga walk to Flat Rock Park. During the week there are 3 more creek walks and an afternoon volunteering at the new Colgan Creek restoration where we will be planting basket sedge and getting the restoration prepared for El Niño. Details are once again at www.srcity.org/creekweek
Join us during the week and then be sure to come out to the Prince Memorial Greenway for Family Fun Day on Saturday, September 26th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Events will be occurring all along the Greenway between Gateway Park on Santa Rosa Avenue and Olive Park on Orange Street.
Family Fun Day combines education and fun with a creek theme. Participants will have hands-on experiences with turtles, and can catch and identify insects and fish in Santa Rosa Creek. For the adventurous, Family Fun Day offers the Downtown Underground, a hike through the Santa Rosa Creek culverts near City Hall. Kids will enjoy the scavenger hunt and can win prizes by getting their Creek Passport stamped at the booths and events.
