Upcoming Activities to Enjoy at the Parks and Trails

April 23rd is #NationalPicnicDay!!!

National Picnic Day encourages everyone to pack up their lunch and take it outdoors. 

There are a variety of ways to take part in a picnic. This meal hearkens back to mid-18th-century al fresco French dining.  From the French for piquenique, picnic means a meal eaten outdoors.

Celebrate this day by having a picnic of your own. Pack up a cooler or basket with a few of your favorite items.  Visit a favorite park or recreation area. Lay the blanket out and enjoy the day with a meal under the sky. Bring a Frisbee or a ball to toss around, too.  Share your photos with us!  We love to see people of all ages enjoying the parks!

 

 

April 30th is National Arbor Day!!! 

Each year in April, National Arbor Day encourages us to celebrate and plant trees.  Trees provide vital protection for the Earth’s topsoil from erosion, oxygen, and homes for wildlife. They also are a renewable resource that provides a variety of materials for building, fuel, and office supplies.

Celebrate the day by planting a tree.  Or just visit one of FORHA's parks and trails to enjoy and admire the beautiful trees!

 

 

 

May 1st is National Play Outside Day !!!

If it’s the first Saturday of the month, it’s National Play Outside Day.  So, no matter what month it is, everyone put down your electronic devices and get outside.  National Play Outside Day is a reminder to stretch our legs and expend some energy in the great outdoors.

And, the first week in May is National Wildflower week.  National Wildflower Week commemorates the colorful blossoms that bring our landscapes to life. Whether they are on hillsides, pastures, parks or trails or our own back yards, wildflowers create habitat, help conserve water and reduce erosion. Get out an enjoy!
