Programs

 

With the ever-changing environment around COVID-19, we are unsure at this time what programs will be able to safely run. We are hoping to be able to offer all of these programs in some form, but will keep these pages updated with changes as needed.

American Red Cross Basic Life Support Training

American Red Cross BLS training class can help you safely and effectively respond to medical emergencies in your community. By blending reading and lecture with hands-on experience, our BLS training allows you to learn new techniques and sharpen your skills so you can deliver care to those in need and help improve patient outcomes. Available for individuals and teams, these courses are modular and flexible and can help meet your organization's standards for care. This is a blended learning class, with an online requirement to be completed before the in-person class begins. A processing fee to the Red Cross is required when registering for the online portion (this is separate from the class fee listed here). Registration is required by Friday, October 30th.


Kid's Night Out

Maybe we should call this program 'Parents' Night Out'! Drop your children at Winding Trails and enjoy a night out on your own. Kids will be well supervised and enjoy fun games, crafts, a pizza party, an ice cream sundae bar and a big screen movie. This program has become a very popular one and space fills up quickly. Please bring clothing that is appropriate for outdoor and indoor play as well as a blanket and pillow for the movie! Registration is required by three days prior to the date of the program.


Saturday Afternoon Family Nature Walks

Join Miss Judy, Winding Trails naturalist, for an afternoon family nature walk once a month that will explore a different topic and location appropriate for the changing fall season. Some walks will travel to a location where an activity will be held while other walks will observe seasonal wildlife and participate in activities during the walk. These informal programs are for all ages, so come prepared with good walking shoes and clothes that can get dirty. Registration is required by 3 days prior to the start of the program.


Saturday Morning Families with Young Children Walks

This program is for an adult with their child or children to explore different aspects of nature and seasons with Miss Judy, the Winding Trails' naturalist. Dress with good walking shoes and choose clothes that can get dirty and are appropriate for the weather so we can explore rain or shine. Registration is required by 3 days prior to the start of the program.


Tom Turkey Hunt- Improved for 2020!

Our annual Tom Turkey Hunt is changing with the times! This year's hunt will be a combination of virtual and physical. You and your family will register online and have your first clue and directions emailed to you once registration closes. From there, you will come to the park and follow the clues around our trail system to find your next clues. Once you complete the hunt, email us the answers to all the clues and you will be registered to win a gift certificate to Highland Park Market for your Thanksgiving feast! You will have nine days to come to the park and complete your hunt. Come out and enjoy a crisp fall day with your family. Deadline for submitting your clues is 10am on Monday, November 30th. Registration is required by Thursday, November 19th.

PROGRAM DISCLAIMER: With the ever changing environment around COVID-19, we are unsure at this time what programs we will be able to safely run. We are hoping to be able to offer all these programs, but will update with changes as necessary.
