At Joe Ford Nature Center, we want to connect people to nature while having a great time as a family. Each year, JFNC offers Music in the Park and other nature related programs.  In 2018 Joe Ford Nature will be offering Nature Camp in June and July and during the Fall and Winter break.  These programs are designed for 7-13 year old with hands on nature experience.  Winter is just around the corner, so the Joe Ford Nature Center team will be brain storming for new events in 2019.   During the winter we will also begin constructing our outdoor Nature Zone for children.  Just as nature needs a rest so does the center so we can come back in early March with new events.  Continue following us on Facebook and our web page
