Event offers educational and family fun activities
Johnston Community College's Howell Woods Environmental Learning Center is making plans for its seventh Howell Woodstock event on Saturday, April 18.
Howell Woodstock offers many free fun activities for the family from 1 until 8 p.m., including fishing, hayrides, environmental educational programs, star gazing, nature walks, live music, and a bonfire with s 'mores. The event will feature a variety of educational programs and booths related to conservation and green living, as well as reptile and birds of prey displays at the learning center. This year's event includes recreational activities such as a rock climbing wall and inflatables. Local vendors will also have food and drinks for sale.
"This year marks our seventh Woodstock event, and we are excited to once again be offering this family-fun day out at Howell Woods," says Jordan Astoske, director. "This is such a beautiful time of year on the Howell Woods property, and we hope folks will come out and bring their families and have a great time with us."
Howell Woods is a unique 2,800-acre natural resource located at 6601 Devil's Racetrack
