Annual Turkey Walk at Friendship Gardens & Native American Heritage Day

The Friendship Gardens hosts a free celebration of Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month. Kids will have the chance to embark on a scavenger hunt throughout the gardens and nature trails – find every hidden paper turkey and win a special Thanksgiving prize!

 Then, visit the Native American Heritage Garden and enjoy getting a first-hand look at Indigenous Peoples’ cooking techniques as the garden educator demonstrates the cooking of traditional pumpkin stew over an open flame.

Children are also invited to check out the ArcelorMittal Children’s Garden, an arena for interactive play experience which includes a playset and a sensory garden.

Kids can also check out phase two of the ArcelorMittal Children’s Garden, a newly installed arena for interactive play experiences created thanks to the support of the ArcelorMittal corporation.

It all happens Thursday from 10am to 4pm CDT, at Friendship Gardens, located at 2055 E. US Highway 12 in Michigan City, Indiana. Friendship Gardens is a historic 105 acre botanical park tucked in the majestic old-growth forests surrounding Trail Creek. Pets on a leash are always welcome.
