Okeeheelee Nature Center Plans Holiday Party

The Friends of the Okeeheelee Nature Center will host its annual Holiday Party on Friday, Dec. 5 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Okeeheelee Nature Center.

The free event celebrates the holiday season featuring live animals, crafts for children, and plenty of cookies and punch. Win valuable prizes in a fundraising raffle, and leave with some holiday gifts from the nature center’s gift shop.

The highlight of the evening will be the naming of the nature center’s two baby alligators through a special naming raffle. This is the only opportunity to submit a name for the new babies, so don’t miss out!

During the event, the nature center’s volunteers will be recognized for the work they accomplished over the past year.

The Okeeheelee Nature Center is operated by the Palm Beach County Parks & Recreation Department and is located in Okeeheelee Park at 7715 Forest Hill Blvd. For more info., call (561) 233-1400 or visit www.pbcparks.com/nature.
