    It’s not every day that we observe Mother Nature.  She’s careful regarding when she can be seen by humans.  One of her favorite stops however, is Hobbs State Park.  Every 2nd Saturday of the month she drops in at the Park’s visitor center! Circle around as Mother Nature sits in the rocker to read a story about the nature that surrounds us. Story time will be followed by an outdoor activity, weather permitting, and a craft. Children of all ages are welcome, but stories will target those 3-6 years of age.
