Celebrate Earth Day by exploring the 200-acre old growth forest at Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve tomorrow beginning at 9 a.m.
Enjoy a full day of events lined up to observe nature and all its beauty with guided hikes, animal encounters, a nature playscape guided activity, musical Earth Day experience with The Melody Garden, and field guides on wildflowers and tree leaves for self-guided tours.
Wesselman Woods is one of only a handful of old growth forests remaining in the country that have grown with little to no disturbance from outside forces, including human interference.
In the December/January 2021 issue of Evansville Business, we highlighted Wesselman Woods’ sustainability efforts through the launch of the Green Allies Initiative, as well as the Nature Preserve’s plans for the former Wesselman Park Par 3 golf course.
Wesselman Woods remains a destination for environmental education and nature conservation, and a site to explore and enjoy the outdoors. Join them in celebrating the planet for Earth Day!
