Cornelia Fall Fun Day Sunday, October 15

For many, fall is a favorite time of year. The air is crisp, trees start to show their colors, and it’s the time for maybe just a few pumpkin-spice flavored goodies. It can also be a great time of year to get out with your family to enjoy the outdoors.

In previous years, Wright County Conservation has hosted a Night Hike at Lake Cornelia for a fun and educational evening about the environment. However, the Night Hike didn’t work out schedule-wise for last year, and this year Conservation planned to host a bigger event with more and different activities for all ages.

 Conservation has invited local families out to Lake Cornelia on October 15 from 2 to 5 p.m. for the first Fall Fun Day. Activities will include hayrides, a pumpkin carving/painting station, a crafts table for younger kids, a campfire with s’mores, “pumpkin bowling” and possibly other games, and, weather permitting, kayak rides led by Raejean Chapman for those interested. Conservation recently purchased the kayaks with a Wright County Charitable Foundation grant.

There will also be a freewill donation fundraiser meal put on by the Clarion-Goldfield-Dows Friends Club and, as in previous years with the Night Hike, nature and environment-themed skits at different points throughout the evening.
