MATTHEWS – The Habitat and Wildlife Keepers, North Carolina Wildlife Federation's Great Outdoors University, and the Town of Matthews are partnering on a fall day at the park by organizing Kids in Nature Day.

The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 16 at Squirrel Lake Park, 1631 Pleasant Plains Road.

It will include fishing, nature hikes, scavenger hunts, crafts and games.

There will be a special area devoted to showing parents how to turn their own backyards into a Certified Wildlife Habitat. HAWK says a Certified Wildlife Habitat not only benefits local wildlife, but it also provides teaching moments for kids and family entertainment in the backyard.
