Kids to Parks Day at Schoharie Crossing
Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site will be participating in the national program called Kids to Parks Day on Saturday, May 19. Bring the kids or grandkids out to the park for a nature program and exploration of the natural wonders of this rich historic site! We will traverse the trail, watching for birds and spotting wildflowers along the way!
The leisurely nature walk starts next to the Visitor Center at 11am and it will take about 90 minutes with interpretive staff. The site is excited to once again be part of National Park Trust’s Kids to Parks Day.
After the walk, children will be encouraged to participate in a seed planting craft project and decorate the sidewalks with chalk. This event is free and perfect for families.
Bring along a picnic lunch to enjoy at the site and create new memories that will last a lifetime.
