Thanksgiving Campfire Cooking Demonstration

Come join the park naturalist for a Thanksgiving inspired camp cooking demonstration.  There will be snacks and some hot drinks.  Enjoy some samples while they last. And yes, we will be cooking a turkey in the Dutch oven.  This year we will be including programs about wild turkeys, the History of Thanksgiving and Dutch oven care. Stop by for a demonstration or a program, and you will get a ticket for the main meal at 4:00 pm.  Food available while supplies last.
