Boy we’re lucky. Here and there we hear about our great friend Mother Nature, but at Hobbs State Park you can actually see her. Yes! Every second Saturday of each month at 10:30 am, all throughout the year, she visits the Park. Her favorite thing to do is to read nature-related stories of the forest and the animals that live there. Those who visit her always remember an educational, memorable, and fun time.
