Campfire Program: Making Art with Leaves, Twigs, Natural
Pigments, & Mud

Saturday, July 13th

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM 

Join National Park Service Naturalist Jerry Hightower and the volunteer staff for a campfire, an opportunity to create art from natural objects, a short guided walk, and a beautiful summer evening! We’ll collect downed leaves, twigs, and other items to glue onto paper to make collages, create a painting using natural pigments, and make other works of art using mud from the wetlands. Join us to express your creativity naturally and enjoy the beauty of evening’s onset at the Chattahoochee! You are welcome to come early and bring a picnic dinner. After the program you are invited to join us on a short walk on the Three Forks Loop Trail.

Parking is limited and carpooling is encouraged.

Facilities: Located in the Center’s Lodge.

Difficulty: Easy level walking

Bring: Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking on a forest trail. Dress in layers so that you can adjust to changes in the temperature and activity level. Bring water and you might include snacks. You are also welcome to bring your own marshmallows to roast. We have roasting forks that you may use.

Limit: 120 persons

Heat warning: As summer temperatures soar and heat incidents increase across the park, CNPC urges attendees to stay safe by being well-prepared for high temperatures. Please bring plenty of water (often more than you think you'll need!), list a reliable emergency contact, and know your limits. Be aware of the serious signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke, including heavy sweating, dizziness, nausea, and confusion. Events may be canceled if temperatures become too extreme. Your safety is our priority.
