Breakfast with the Birds

The winter blue’s got you down, Shake it off and come visit your park friends inside the Nature Center at Luhr Park.  Let this be an invitation to bundle up and grab the whole family; we promise it will be an explorative morning with the wonders of nature and the wildlife.  So come visit and bring the whole family to relax, enjoy nature, and have some continental breakfast on us while strolling through this natural setting from 9:30 – 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 25, 2020 at Luhr Park.

We promise that you and your family will have a hands-on encounter with nature’s fine-feathered creatures at our Nature Center nestled in the woods at Luhr County Park.  They will be sure to entertain you during your stay.  Enjoy your breakfast snack while you gaze up close and personal through our one-way glass in the wildlife viewing room and listen to a musical show while our many feathered friends sing and enjoy their own snack with hopes to see cardinals, juncos, various woodpeckers, squirrels and possibly a goldfinch or two.

While inside the nature center stroll along our displays, try your hands at our animal tracks station, gaze into the eyes of a great horned owl, look up close and personal into the homes our fish, snakes, turtles and salamanders.  But that’s not all; come scavenge the Nature Center for a mystery visitor.

Want to explore on your own; then take your journey outside for a self guided scavenger hunt.  There is native wildlife inhabiting our woods along our scenic hiking trails embarked from the Nature Center.  We offer four significant ecosystems; upland forest, prairie, wetlands, and pond. 

In addition, any family members playing Pokémon, Luhr Park is home to two Poké spots and two gyms.  It’s all here, come explore our recreation opportunities. 

This is the perfect time to plan family time outside.  We are all far to restless to be indoors and the kids need an outlet for all their stored up energy.  Especially now during the cold winter months that keep us captive a lot of the times.  So what do you say, come see us Saturday at Luhr County Park from 9:30 – 11;00 a.m. for this free event.  So don’t just sit there… Come on out to your LaPorte County Parks.
