Every year, hundreds of people come out to ClearWater Conservancy’s Spring Creek Family Festival. This Saturday, June 18, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the 29th annual free event will take place at Millbrook Marsh Nature Center.
Past activities at the festival have included face painting, fly fishing demonstrations, guided walks, scavenger hunts, archaeological digs, turtle shows, cookie decorating and much more, and conservation exhibits are expected from more than 30 groups.
Music will be provided by Rene’ Oakman, Tussey Mountain Moonshiners and Tolins’ Bluegrass Revue, and food will be provided by Webster’s Café, Gemelli Pizza Oven and Sugar on Top.
Prior to the festival is the Strides for Nature 5K Run/Walk. Registration is at 7:30 a.m. and costs $25 (or $18 if you pre-register online.) The race starts at 8:30, and there is a kids’ fun race that starts at 10.
ClearWater Conservancy promotes the conservation and restoration of natural resources in Central Pennsylvania through land conservation, water resource protection and environmental outreach to the community.
The organization could use some help with cooking, parking, staffing booths, registration, set up, tear down and and product sales at the ClearWater table, so if you want to get involved, call 814-237-0400 and ask for Chris or Jen.
Whether you come as an attendee or a volunteer, the Spring Creek Family Festival will be a fun time for all!
