Description:
Join us for our second “Arts & Nature on the River”!

This event combines the beauty of nature with a sampling of the creative arts it inspires. Stroll the paved trails around Four Rivers Environmental Education Center while exploring several informal venues and galleries located throughout the preserve.

Visitors will discover numerous art exhibits, live music, intriguing performances, creative demonstrations and hands-on activities. Exhibits and activities will be ongoing. Demonstrations and performances will be scheduled multiple times throughout the afternoon.

“Arts & Nature” is an “unplugged” affair with an environmentally sensitive approach.

Visitors can bike or hike in via the I&M Canal Trail. Bicycle parking will be available.

Take in the sights and sounds and discover something new at every bend in the trail!
