The Youth in Nature Partnership, comprised of governmental and non-profit organizations, will once again collaborate to bring youth into the outdoors. Play in the Rain Day is a FREE FAMILY EVENT for all ages. The day's activities will include tree-climbing, nature crafts, hikes, hay rides, campfire cookery, a visit from Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl, native plants, fire by friction, nature art, archery, and even a visit from our own Frannie the Frog! Parking courtesy of Lane County Parks and all activities, including campfire food, are FREE!
Visitors will discover how fun, easy, and rewarding it is to spend time outdoors in nature—in ALL kinds of weather. More than 1,000 people attended last year. Play in the Rain Day will happen rain or shine, so dress for the weather.
