Nature Fridays: Bicycle Day


Guess what? September 22 is not just a regular day – it's World Car Free Day and we're inviting you to be part of a global celebration where we give car engines a break and discover cool ways to get around such as biking and walking. How amazing does that sound? Join us to explore the benefits of active transportation! Kids will create bicycle crafts made from sustainable materials and learn about bike safety.
