Bluff Lake is committed to providing free family programming to our community. This is only possible thanks to generous support from our donors and sponsors. Though most of our programs are free, donations are always welcome!
Family Nature Adventure Days (FREE)
Join our youth education team for monthly themed family days! They are held on the last Saturday of each month from 8-11 a.m., from March through September. There will be activities, crafts, scavenger hunts, kids’ equipment to borrow for exploration hikes, and visits from live animal guests with Nature’s Educators (select months). See our 2019 Family Day Themes for full details.
Fireside Chats (FREE)
All ages are welcome for these fun and informational programs! They are held on the second Thursday of every month from 6:30-8 p.m., from April through October. Bluff Lake will bring in experts to explain the wonders and mysteries of our environment. Join us for s’mores or popsicles after each program! Check our 2019 Fireside Chat Presenters for full details leading up to the programs.
