A Wildlife Holiday


December 10th from 1-3 p.m. for a Wildlife Holiday and share some holiday cheer with the birds and critters found at Gibson Woods. Create an edible ornament and hang it outside for the animals to enjoy. Come back inside to watch them enjoy your gift.

Christmas at the Mill

Visit Deep River County Park the first three Saturdays in December for Christmas at the Mill. The visitor center will be stocked with unique (and tasty) gifts, and children can make an ornament to take home with them. Don't forget to get the perfect photo for your Christmas Card in front of any one of the beauitfully decorated buildings or gazebo. The park and buildings are open each day December 3, 10 and 17, from 10-5.
