Photos – Kids experience nature’s best at annual EcoFest

Sunday was a perfect day to commune with nature and thousands of people decided to do just that, descending upon the Environmental Learning Center for its 22nd annual EcoFest, enjoying a brisk but sunny afternoon wandering the diverse 64-acre campus.

As part of its Nature Rocks! theme, little ones were challenged to take part in a scavenger hunt among the winding trails to search for painted rocks and to also create some of their own.

Visitors enjoyed live music by the River Rats, numerous educational exhibits and interactive games, arts and crafts with an ecological twist, canoe trips through mangrove tunnels, the always popular Discovery Station Interactive Museum & Touch Tank, and the newly opened Mack Whiting Nature Playscape.
