[November 26, 2012]  McLEAN -- Families are invited to come out for a day of holiday fun at Sugar Grove Nature Center in Funks Grove on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be a guided hike at 11 a.m. and animal feeding time at 1 p.m. Visitors can also spend time exploring the trails and playing in Imagination Grove.

Stop inside the main building to create a holiday craft and write a letter to Santa at any time throughout the day. Boys and girls of all ages are invited to take part in the center's "Letters to Santa" tradition, in which children put their wish lists in a special mailbox in Imagination Grove for the woodland animals to deliver.

Family Nature Exploration Days are scheduled the first Saturday of every month as free opportunities to get out and explore nature. No registration is required.
