The Clinton Community Nature Center is gearing up for its fifth annual holiday event, Deck the Trails, which will run for NINE nights, from 12/15 through 12/23.

The nightly shows will begin at 6 p.m. and concluding at 8:30 p.m.

In 2016, approximately 3000 people took advantage of the Nature Center’s signature event as it was decked out and lit for the holidays and offering visits with Santa, children’s activities and music ringing through the trees in the heart of Clinton.

This year’s event will include approx. ¼ mile illuminated trail that will include a music & light show at our amphitheatre before continuing to wind through wooded areas back to Price Hall

Volunteers will string thousands of lights in the trees on site, at the entrances, in Price Hall and surrounding areas, and synchronized holiday music will accompany the light show to enhance the total experience.

In Price Hall (Santa’s workshop), Santa will be available for photos with his fans, and parents and grandparents can bring their own cameras to snap pictures. There will also be a children’s coloring station, with the opportunity to place finished artwork on display. The social room will be set up to accommodate visitors who want to sit, relax, and listen to the music, as well.

“We are excited to once again open our trails for this unique event, said CCNC Board Member Cathy Shropshire. “This is one of our major fundraisers, so we hope people will come out and enjoy the lights and music and visit with Santa and help support the Clinton Community Nature Center.”

“We are a private nonprofit organization, so we depend on the support of businesses and individuals to help us share our trails and education programs with the public.”

Froghead Grill owner Josh Welch will provide snacks, such as cider, hot cocoa, coffee, cookies and other treats that can be purchased onsite.

Admission is set at $3 per person, ages 3 and up, with free admission for Nature Center members.

As a non-profit with no state or federal funding, the Clinton Community Nature Center relies on memberships, sponsorships, and events such as Deck the Trails to keep the facility operating.
