Nov 8 - Clyde Shepherd Nature Preserve’s 9th Annual Harvest Celebration

(The CSNP is just a few minutes outside the city limits. It's just a great place for a short nature walk, and 150 types of birds have been spotted there. There's a nice boardwalk in the back built by Eagle Scouts and Boy Scouts.)

Ninth Annual Harvest Festival
4-8 PM, Saturday November 8th
Take your mind off the hard times and come enjoy the sights and sounds of nature on an autumn evening at Clyde Shepherd Nature Preserve’s ninth annual Harvest Celebration on Saturday, November 8, from 4-8 pm. Come bring the family to enjoy music, crafts, nature walks, and a warm campfire with your neighbors. Guests are invited to bring a picnic dinner this year and CSNP will provide the marshmallows, hot chocolate and other soft drinks, and light snacks. Children can hunt for pumpkins and create crafts to take home. The Beans, a popular Decatur ensemble consisting of Atlanta acoustic scene veterans Cyndi Craven, Allison Adams, and Billy Gewin will perform. Their repertoire includes originals by band members and a fun assortment of cover songs ranging from Tin Pan Alley tunes to classic pop. Locally grown produce will be available for sale. Chris Beck will again demonstrate his wonderful home composting system. A donation of $3 to support our programs at the nature preserve is requested.
