Spring Valley offers family programs. Programs change seasonally.

Spend time in nature with your family! The following programs have a special family rate. By registering one child, it is assumed that a minimum of two people (one adult and one child) or a maximum of four people are attending. Please do not register additional people; they may pay the day of the program.

Winter Campfire in the Cabin

Brave the winter chill for an evening of fun around the fireplace. After meeting at the Nature Center, enjoy a short hike through the woods down to the Merkle Log Cabin. We’ll tell stories, sing a few songs, enjoy some hot chocolate and even practice some pioneer skills! 

This event is for ages 2 and older. Cost is $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents. Fee is per family of four. Cost for additional family members is $3 for residents and $4 for non-residents.
