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!

Join us for our annual holiday fundraiser featuring fresh green decor, artisan gifts, frozen soups, appetizers, baked goods and, of course, family fun. We’ll have festive children’s crafts, magical winter nature walks, Santa visits and a variety of holiday vendors. Brewhemia will be onsite with coffee and hot chocolate available for purchase, and don’t forget to stop by Noel’s Attic for a selection of gently-used holiday décor! Shop early for the best selection! Sponsored by Friends of Indian Creek Nature Center to benefit the Nature Center.
