Up close with nature at Bob Jones Center

Bob Jones Nature Center celebrated the fall season the way it knows how — with nature.

The center hosted its inaugural Fall Festival on Saturday with visits from a few of nature’s friends and a variety of activities.

Attendees had the opportunity to get up close with animals which included a corn snake, Barn owl and skunk.

The fun continued with a chance for attendees to take part in activities such as a scavenger hunt, pie tasting, face painting, pumpkin carving and view a photo display by the Bob Jones Nature Center Camera Club.

While the wet weather pushed the festivities inside, organizers said they were happy with the results and plan to schedule it next year in October in hope of better weather.
