Visit with volunteers at staff at the Nature Center on Thursday, January 11 from 1-2 p.m. as they feed the reptiles, amphibians and fish. Also at the Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center, expand your skills beyond leaf identification and discover what other features can be used to identify tree species at Winter Tree ID on Saturday, January 13 from 1-3 p.m. After all, you don’t know a tree until you see it leafless! Bundle up and wear comfortable shoes as this naturalist-led hike will take place on the Ridgetop Trail behind the nature center.
The holiday season is also engagement season, and the new year brings “Bridal Christmas” as newly engaged couples dive into wedding planning! If you’re sporting a shiny new ring, come to Cape Girardeau for a weekend of wedding planning fun and festivities with dress shopping, bridal expos and more!
