Outdoor Exploration Day


2019 - 3rd Annual Outdoor Exploration Day

The Eastern Shore SWCD partnered with Kiptopeke State Park and Eastern Shore's Own Arts Center to sponsor the Eastern Shore's 3rd Outdoor Exploration Day which was held on Saturday, September 28th! This event marked the 3rd Annual Outdoor Exploration Day at Kiptopeke State Park. There were over 600 adults and children in attendance. Visitors to Outdoor Exploration Day met falcons, hawks, & owls with Flight of the Raptor. They made nature prints, pine cone owls and listened to local band Sonic Ukes at the Creation Station. Families went crabbing and fishing down on the pier! Children delighted in feeding live Painted Lady and Monarch butterflies at the Pollination Station. Virginia State Park staff provided historical cooking demonstrations and hands-on experiences with Virginia wildlife. Many organizations and volunteers helped make the 3rd Annual Outdoor Exploration Day a huge success.
