McCloud rafting build and movie on tap Saturday

Friday, August 17, 2012

McCloud Nature Park will be the site of a river raft build on Saturday, Aug. 18.

The activity will coincide with a showing of the movie "Huck Finn." During the film, which begins at noon, a naturalist will help participants build a raft.

Following the film, activities will move to Big Walnut Creek where the models will be tested for seaworthiness. A life-size raft will then be built for youngsters to ride in the creek.

Water shoes and a personal flotation device are recommended to ride in the creek.

The program, designed for ages 10 and up, will last about 2-1/2 hours.

McCloud Nature Park is located at 8518 N. Hughes Rd. Admission is always free. The park is open from dawn to dusk daily.

For more information, persons may call (317) 718-6188 or visit hendrickscountyparks.org.
