Educational Environmental Tours!

Do you enjoy walking through the forest on a nice December day? If so then you will most definitely enjoy this tram tour through the Silver Springs Forest. Come and see where the local wildlife reside, and learn some interesting facts about the animals and the land too!  The Silver Springs Tour will begin at 9 a.m. on December 14th, and it costs $10 per person to get onto the accessible tram for all ages! There are also other tram tours in Sunny Hill on December 28th and one in Carney on December 23rd, tour time is 9 a.m. and the price for entry is $10.


If riding a tram isn’t really your style and you’d rather immerse yourself into nature for 2-3 hours, than you should check out the Marion County Interpretive Nature Walks. The walks are held on Tuesdays and Saturdays starting December 16th at Orange Creek North, and December 19th at Eaton’s Sinkhole. Participants should be in good health and be able to walk for two to three hours with occasional rest stops to take a break and enjoy the scenery. The meeting place will be at Brick City Adventure Park at 8:30 in the morning, so grab your coffee and your walking shoes for a fun December morning nature hike. From the meeting point transportation will be provided to go the walking location, and the fee is two dollars per person.
