Want  something fun to do with your family on a rainy– or perhaps even sunny– Saturday this November? Come visit Mount Pisgah Arboretum for our community’s 4th annual Play in the Rain Day on Saturday, November 12th, from 10 am to 3 pm!

Play in the Rain Day is a FREE FAMILY EVENT for all ages, put on by the Youth in Nature Partnership, which is comprised of governmental and non-profit organizations dedicated to getting youth outside. The day’s activities will include tree-climbing by the River House, horses, nature crafts, hikes, hay rides, campfire cookery, a visit from Smokey Bear, native plants, fire by friction, archery and more! Parking and all activities, including campfire food, are FREE!

The day is a great reminder of how fun, easy and rewarding it is to spend time outdoors in nature—in ALL kinds of weather. More than 1,000 people attended last year. Play in the Rain Day will happen rain or shine, so dress for the weather!
