Northern Kentucky University’s Research and Education Field Station invites the community to its annual Nature Adventure Day on Sept. 25, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Family and friends visiting the field station will spend the afternoon exploring the unique natural features across the St. Anne Wetlands, part of a 155-acre conservation easement on and near the Ohio River.

Activities like scavenger hunts and turtle races will be held throughout the afternoon.

“Adventure Day is great for our community. I love seeing the excitement on people’s faces when they experience nature on this level,” said Dr. Richard Durtsche, REFS director. “If you want to take a break from the activities, our students’ research will be on display inside the field station, and you can always join a wetlands hiking tour.” 

Nature Adventure Day is presented in tandem with Take a Child Outside Week and Green Umbrella’s Great Outdoor Weekend, which are designed to encourage children and adults to spend time together outdoors.

The event takes place at 99 Harrison Court, in Melbourne.
