Camping and evening programs entertaining and informative

   If you decide to give camping a try be sure and find out if the park you plan to stay at offers evening programs.
   Some park rangers will speak and present a slide show or video of the park, surrounding  area, wildlife, plants, trees, trails, and a number of other topics.
  These are equally entertaining as well as informative. Besides learning about animals in the area you may be shown what tracks they make, where they make their homes, and when and where you might expect to see them during your visit.
   Programs such as these are usually free and often provide the ending to a perfect day in the outdoors. They also provide great topics for conversations and wonderful activities for the family to pursue.
   For instance, on your next hike you might look for a certain animal, tree or bird that was talked about during the previous evenings program.
   Be sure and take advantage of any or all of these programs when they are offered. There is always something new to learn.
