Fairfax County’s first nature center will mark its 50th anniversary with a day of fun, music and special family-friendly activities on October 19, 2019. Hidden Oaks Nature Center in Annandale, Virginia, opened in 1969 and now serves more than 30,000 visitors a year.
Hidden Oaks’ anniversary event has been designed with all ages in mind. Visitors will have an opportunity to go on a Hidden Treasures of Hidden Oaks scavenger hunt and see demonstrations of monarch butterfly tagging and release. There will be a Reptiles Alive presentation and music from the Vienna School of Rock, in honor of Woodstock’s 50th year, as well as other children’s music groups. A new chainsaw tree artwork will also be on display. The carving features images of animals that call the park their home.
