Visit Prairie Ridge for our first ever StoryWalk® featuring Noisy Bird Sing Along, by John Himmelman. Our story begins just inside our entry gates and will take you on a mini tour of the places where you can observe birds at Prairie Ridge.
Be sure to wear closed-toed shoes that can get muddy, appropriate dress for the weather, and bring a water bottle. Trails are mulch, dirt or grass and small hills are included — trail strollers or baby carriers are recommended for our smallest visitors. Bring a picnic and enjoy the day (but please pack out your trash!).
This StoryWalk® will be available March 30 through April 24 each day we are open, weather pending. Prairie Ridge is open 9am-4pm Tuesday–Saturday; closed on Sundays and Mondays. We will also be closed on April 2 for the State Holiday.
Visitors are expected to follow the “Three Ws” as outlined by the NC Department of Health and Human Services — WEAR a cloth mask over your nose and mouth when you are near others and inside the restroom building; WAIT in line at least six feet away from others and; WASH your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer. If you are experiencing symptoms of illness, we ask that you postpone your visit.
This activity is FREE and no registration is required. Please note our Nature PlaySpace is currently closed.
