Twin Lakes State Park 788 Twin Lakes Rd. Green Bay, Virginia

Celebrate National Kids to Parks Day at Twin Lakes State Park, where rangers are providing opportunities for kids and adults alike to connect with nature. This year Twin Lakes will be offering the following free programs, which all meet near the concessions area: 10 a.m. - Lake Explorers The edges of our lakes feature a tiny world that is teeming with life. In this program we'll use dip nets to explore a lake ecosystem, and explain the importance of some of the wildlife we find. 1 p.m. - Backyard Bass The land-based, hookless fishing game is a fun and safe way to learn how to cast for all ages and ability levels. 3 p.m. - Meet and Greet with Ranger Myrtle the Turtle At this program, guests will have a chance to meet Ranger Myrtle, the park's Red-eared Slider turtle. Those who stop by will learn how this native to the deep south ended up at Twin Lakes State Park, what she does with her eggs, and how to be a friend to Myrtle and all other turtles. Parks are for everyone. This is an inclusive program open to all people. To ensure an enjoyable time, please alert park staff to any necessary special accommodations you or your group may need.
