3:00 PM - Wild Things! – Dragonflies
Join Sinnemahoning's park naturalist for an informative program on Pennsylvania's dragonflies. These amazing and complicated insects are sometimes dismissed as just another insect around ponds and waterways, but they are efficient predators and an important component of wetland habitats. The program will include a short walk to view dragonfly habitat and all children attending will have an opportunity to make a pipe cleaner-and-bead dragonfly to take home. Meet at the campground amphitheater.

5:00 PM - Biking the Lowlands Trail
Join Sinnemahoning State Park's naturalist for an afternoon interpretive bike tour of the Lowlands Trail. Take a leisurely ride through rich wildlife habitats and areas where people once lived and worked. Learn how the 40 Maples Day-Use Area earned its name! The Lowlands Trail, which has a Rails-To-Trails surface, is a fairly level, easy ride. Bring your own bike, or borrow one of ours. Call the park at 814-647-8401 to register and/or reserve a bicycle for this program. Water, sunscreen, and insect repellant are recommended. Meet at the 40 Maples Day-Use Area.

8:30 PM – Pennsylvania’s Wild Garden

The first European immigrants to explore Pennsylvania found a lush, diverse "garden" of plant species. Many of those species have disappeared, and many more are under threat of extinction or extirpation from the onslaught of invasive species and the disruptions of human activity. Meet at the campground amphitheater for a video presentation and information on ways to help preserve Pennsylvania's precious biodiversity.
