Kids to Park Day — Mussels

May 18, 2024. 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Stock Creek Recreation Area

Spend National Kids to Park Day at Natural Tunnel State Park as we celebrate our outdoor resources and get everyone excited about parks; there’s more than just meets the eye! To end the evening with a refresher, we will be offering free water activities including “Flexing Our Mussels.”

Mussels play a huge part in our watershed. A single mussel can filter more than 15 gallons of water per day. Grab a snorkel and investigate these freshwater powerhouses with us. Meet at Stock Creek Recreational Area, and we will transport you to the Clinchport boat launch. This program is suitable for ages 6 and up. Please wear closed-toe shoes and be prepared to get wet.

Registration is required since space is limited. Call the park office at 276-940-2674 for more information and to register.

Natural Tunnel State Park is proud to offer red/green colorblindness correcting outdoor glasses by EnChroma during all offered programming; three protan red sensitivity and three deutan green sensitivity are available for use during programs.
