November Programs

Seed Bombs

Saturday, November 3 - Bombs Away!

Join us in the field at Heritage Trail Park as we explore native wildflowers and seeds. Dress to get a little dirty, as we make fun seed balls using native seeds and soil.  Then help “bomb” the meadow with seed bombs the nature center staff prepared ahead.

Friday, November 9 - Mommy & Me: Turkeys

Give your toddler a fun and interactive introduction to nature in our Mommy & Me classes! Each month we will focus on a different topic and will feature live animal encounters, stories, crafts and nature exploration. Due to school being in session, parking is not available at the Zion Nature Center. We will meet at the elementary school gates at 9:30 a.m. and walk to the Nature Center together.

Thursday, November 15 - Coyotes in Our Community

  • When: 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.
  • Where: St. Vincent Community Room, Zionsville Town Hall, 1100 W. Oak Street

Coyotes are a part of our natural habitat, yet it can be a little unnerving observing them in your neighborhood. Join Urban Wildlife Biologists from Indiana Division of Fish and Wildlife, and Zionsville Park Naturalist Mindy Murdock, for an evening conversation on coyotes in our community. We will explore the life of coyotes in Indiana, and their natural behavior in urban environments. Gather correct information, and discuss ways we can adapt to become good neighbors.  

Friday, November 16 - Animal Adventures: Deer

Meet at the Library for story time fun. Afterwards, we will walk to the Zion Nature Center to explore deer.

Saturday, November 17 - Monthly Dog Walk 

  • When: 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
  • Where: Turkey Foot Nature Park, 4795 Turkeyfoot Avenue

Autumn is coming to a close. You and your dog are invited to join us as we enjoy the sights and smells of a late autumn day. Shuffle through the fallen leaves in Turkey Foot Nature Park as we catch beautiful views of Eagle Creek.

Saturday, November 24 - Drop-in Discovery

  • When: 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
  • Where: Zion Nature Center, 690 Beech Street

Family in town for the holiday weekend, and looking for something to do? Need a break from all the holiday sales and shopping? Stop in to the Zion Nature Center for a chance to relax, explore and discover. There will be opportunities to meet some of the nature center animals, a holiday craft and refreshments.
