Oneida, Tennessee: To celebrate the beautiful season of autumn, a park ranger from the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area will read children’s books about this colorful season on Saturday, October 29, at the McCreary County Public Library.
Have you ever wondered how and why leaves turn from green to reds, orange and yellows? We will also explore what season follows autumn and how animals may be preparing for it. Our craft project will be doing leaf rubbings from gathered fall leaves! Story time will begin at 10:30 a.m. followed by the arts and crafts project.
With over 125,000 acres of public land, the Big South Fork NRRA offers something for everyone. From exploring the backcountry to taking a stroll along the river, visitors can enjoy the colorful show of autumn in the outdoors in a variety of ways.
