Spring is here and my kids are begging to spend every waking moment outside.
Can you blame them?!
We love the great outdoors but weather like this makes it almost impossible to stay inside. Nature just beckons us outdoors to enjoy its beauty.
The City of Southlake and the Bob Jones Nature Center share our passion and they want to share it with the community as well as they announce the 1st annual Great Outdoor Days.
Great Outdoor Days will be a fun filled two-day event featuring outdoor activities, demonstrations, fishing, camping and a whole lot more. The event will also include the Bob Jones Nature Center Earth Day Celebration, the annual Spring Family Campout and Youth Fishing Day competition. Adults and kids alike will have the opportunity to learn about the variety of outdoor activities in own our backyards like geocaching, disc golf and the local wildlife.
