PBC Natural Areas Festival March 10

Palm Beach County’s Department of Environmental Resources Management invites the public to get out and explore Palm Beach County Natural Areas at the annual Natural Areas Festival. This free, family-friendly celebration will encourage youth and adults of all ages to discover the beauty and wilderness found throughout the 31,000 acres of Palm Beach County’s Natural Areas System.

The Natural Areas Festival will take place Saturday, March 10 from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Winding Waters Natural Area (6161 Haverhill Road, West Palm Beach).

Guests can explore the marvels of the natural areas through a 5K trail race (registration required), hands-on exhibits, wildlife presentations, a kid’s zone, guided hikes, kayak tours, food trucks and more.

With natural areas spread across the county, ERM will host smaller events at other natural areas March 7-10.

“Palm Beach County’s Natural Areas provide a vital opportunity for us to reconnect with nature and discover all the physical and emotional benefits that come from spending time outdoors,” ERM Deputy Director Michael Stahl said.
