2023 Fall Program & Events Guide

 Director’s Notes

Is it fall already?? What happened to the summer??? I know – it was filled with Family Fun Nights, Neighborhood Nights in the Park and environmental programs galore! Don’t worry, the staff has lined up some great programs for the fall too and before we know it we’ll be preparing for winter and wondering what happened to the fall.

The Family Nature Series has a great mix of new and repeat programs scheduled for you. There are walks for wee ones and walks in the dark (including a walk in a local cemetery). Join us to learn about turtles, birds and hibernation. Other family programs include Halloween Chemistry and the ever-popular Astronomy with the Berks County Amateur Astronomical Society who will show you the moon, the stars and maybe even a galaxy or two!
Every participant needs to be registered.

Calling all creative adults and those who want to be creative! We have a great line-up of art and craft programs for you this season – no experience needed. From the Tree of Life Wreath to a Fall Gnome and DIY potpourri –just to name a few – we have a class for you! There are also programs to improve your physical and mental health. Forest bathing, chair yoga and several different Berks Encore classes are scheduled throughout the fall season. Spaces are limited so please register early.

Fall Family Fun Day at West Lawn Park is back with great family games, activities and entertainment. A Red Caboose Christmas is scheduled for the first Saturday in December. Please note the changes to this year’s event and remember that each participant must be registered.

The Department is still collecting non-perishable food items and personal hygiene items for Helping Harvest at all of our programs and events. We also have a box in our office so please consider bringing something to help our neighbors.

The fall season is when Mother Nature puts on her best show. Take some time to get outdoors and see it – it’s a different show every year! Keep an eye on the website and follow us on Facebook as the staff continues to develop additional programs and events not listed in this brochure.

We look forward to seeing you in our parks and programs!
