Turtle Ridge Event at Pringle Creek


Wild at Heart

Presented

December 2, 2012
2PM to 4PM
by James Dawson
Wildlife Scientist & Educator

Whether it’s the flash of a hawk chasing birds from the backyard feeder or the grace of a doe leading two shy fawns behind the house, when it comes to unexpected encounters with wild animals, everyone is a kid at heart!  Adults and children of all ages are invited to join Turtle Ridge Wildlife Center for a program to learn about wildlife and the many ways in which we can coexist with them. Find out what to do if you find injured or orphaned wildlife and how Turtle Ridge is growing to better meet the demands of wildlife conservation in the area.


See a hawk fly and meet our bird ambassadors up close. This family event is a one-hour presentation offered free of charge.

Pumpkins, Apples and Monsters, Oh My!


Last Wednesday we celebrated October 31st with an All Hallows' Evening event at Pringle Creek Community. Neighbors and friends of Pringle Creek joined together for some crafts, monster creating, hung apple biting, pumpkin bowing, good food and fun. Thank you to all of you who took part and made the evening such a success.

The weather stayed cool and rainy, a perfect end to October. Apples harvested from the Pringle Creek Community orchard dangled from string and challenged our party goers to a contest of who could get the most bites without using their hands. For some, the apple was too tasty keep at the challenge for long.



What would any Hallow Eve celebration be without monsters. At our monster creation table kids drew their own monsters, gave them names and shared them on our monster wall for all to scream, oops, see!


If you have never tried to bowl with a pumpkin, add it to your bucket list of fun things to try. Our bowling teams hit high scores and even a few strikes.

Creating community and having fun are perfect ingredients for happy living, all of which we strive for everyday at Pringle Creek Community. Join us next year for another All Hallows' Evening celebration.
