Storytime with Santa


Storytime with Santa

Did you ever wonder how Santa gets his reindeer to travel so fast?  Like, how does he know who is naughty or nice? Does he ever get a tummy ache from too much sugar?  Well, why not ask him? Believe it or not, Santa will be at Dinosaur Hill Nature Preserve to answer all of your questions!

Come and gather at Dinosaur Hill Nature Preserve for our annual Story time with Santa event.  The nature center will be decorated for the holidays, Santa's helpers will be here making sure all the good children are having fun by helping them build a toy, having tea time all while they wait for a magical visit with Santa.  

Visit the log Little House at the edge of the woods to make a backyard treat for our feathered friends and carry the cheer throughout the preserve listening to carolers while playing a few fun games.  This is a special event that celebrates the natural beauty of the preserve and brings the community together to celebrate the season.  

Tickets are $8.00/person, and must be purchased in advance. This event usually sells out and runs on timed groups, so it is best to buy tickets early. Admission fees include a magical visit with Santa, holiday tea time, toy making, a sweet treat, and a story.

Tickets for this wonderful event will be available Fall 2019
