Mid-Morning, Afternoon Activities To Take Over Ponca State Park

PONCA – With the cold weather settling in, don’t forget about Ponca State Park weekend events that are made for the entire family.

Scheduled for Saturday, the Critter Corner will open the morning at 10 a.m. This program will provide a snapshot of the wildlife found along the Missouri River. Participants will be able to see and touch live critters, furs, shells and more. Meet at the Resource and Education Center for this free event.

Moving into the afternoon at 1 p.m. park-goers will enjoy a fall hike and craft. With trees changing colors and losing their leaves, it also makes a perfect time to do colorful crafts. Join Ponca naturalists for a short hike to collect items and make a fall theme to take home. Cost is $1 per craft with a limit of 20 crafts.

Closing out the afternoon, visitors will get a chance to create an Indian Corn Craft at 2:30 p.m. Meet and pay $1 per craft at the Resource and Education Center with a limit to 15 crafts.
