Nature’s Noel

When it’s time to deck the halls, it’s time for Nature’s Noel! Held annually on the first Saturday in December, the Nature Center grounds are adorned with beautiful fresh-cut evergreens fashioned into wreaths, centerpieces, kissing balls, swags and yule logs, all available for purchase to make your home festive for the holidays!

Come in the morning for the fresh green decor and the artisan gifts you’ve always loved and stay for a day of family fun! Enjoy Noel’s Attic, featuring used holiday décor for purchase, festive children’s crafts, naturalist-guided activities, and magical winter nature walks. Visit Santa and peruse a variety of holiday vendors. Brewhemia will be onsite with coffee and hot chocolate available for purchase.

Centerpieces, wreaths and swags made with fresh greens; frozen soups and appetizers; vendors with various handmade wares; cookie dough and baked good; and live music combine to create a festive holiday event. Shop early for the best selection! Sponsored by Friends of Indian Creek Nature Center to benefit the Nature Center.
