Auburn University’s Kreher Preserve and Nature Center will hold its annual fall festival, Fall Family Fun Day, on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“Summer is not giving up easily this year, but that’s not stopping us from celebrating the season,” said Michael Buckman, center manager. “The Kreher Preserve and Nature Center’s annual Fall Family Fun Day is a beloved event in our community and this year will be better than ever. Our partner for this event, the City of Auburn’s Parks and Recreation Department, is helping us bring visitors an awesome day, full of activities and fun for the whole family.”

Fall Family Fun Day offers many activities for all ages including live music, nature hikes, animal encounters and more. The Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art will be hosting fall-themed crafts.  Event sponsor Opelika Dental Associates will be offering face painting and storytelling from their tent.  And refreshments and lunch will be available for purchase from on-site food and drink vendors.

The event begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m. at the center at 2222 N. College St. in Auburn. This event is free but the center’s staff ask that guests consider a $1 donation per person to support the Kreher Preserve and Nature Center’s conservation and education mission.
