PENFIELD – Staff at Parker Dam State Park has listed their schedule of upcoming park programs.
Friday, June 16

E. Parachute Games
3 p.m. – Beach Area
Meet by the Beach House at the big parachute to play some parachute games with an environmental twist. All ages welcome.
Things Naturalists Do
8:30 p.m. – Campground Amphitheater
Catch Crayfish, pet bees, mess with moths. All that and more. Learn some of the quirky things that people like me do to entertain themselves.
Sunday, June 18
Tea & Talk
7 p.m. – Beach House Steps
Bring your own cup to sample some sweet fern/mountain mint tea grown right here in the park. Talk is, as always, whatever you want to talk about concerning the park. Come prepared with a topic or three.
