GREEN BAY KIDS’ DAY, MONDAY, JUNE 25th
Baird Creek Preservation Foundation is spending a day doing what we do best…focusing on kids and nature. Join us for a day of fun in the Baird Creek Greenway. Keep checking back for more details!

Fish Hike: 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Kids’ Bike Ride: 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. Led by Broken Spoke…(all ages welcome, parents can ride along, limited bikes will be available in all sizes, bring your own bikes if you want!!!).
Picnic & Concert in the Park: 5:30-8:00 p.m. Food Trucks: Maldonado’s, Philly and York, Thibby’s Ice Cream and more. Concert: 6:30-7:30 Pandora’s Groove, Steel Drum Band. Come eat supper on the hill and let the kids listen to music and run around on the hill. A great way to finish off Kids’ Day and have some family time!
Bike Ride Details: Broken Spoke will lead a group ride through the Baird Creek Greenway. Just a short out and back so that any kid, any age, can come along. They will have enough riders to stick with all levels of kids (some to ride ahead, and some to stick with the littles at whatever pace they need to go). Some of the ride will be on the paved trail and some on the dirt bike trails so that kids get exposed to all the Greenway offers. Limited bikes will be available so feel free to bring your own (and parents can ride along too)!
Bug Hike Details: Join bug expert Mike Draney (UWGB Professor) for a hike through the Prairie ecosystem in Baird Creek to explore what bugs live in the Greenway, what they interact with, the good, the bad, and the fun facts about all the littlest inhabitants of the area.
Fish Hike Details: Join Charlie Frisk, Baird Creek Preservation Foundation (BCPF) Board President. Charlie will lead you to some of the best locations, to find the largest number of fish, in Baird Creek. He will use a large seine to temporarily capture some of the fish (and other aquatic creatures) to take a look at the biodiversity of the creek. This hike is a “kid focused” event, so bring the whole family. We encourage the kids to get in the creek and explore so be prepared for wet, muddy fun!
Remember to dress for the weather, and be prepared to encounter a few hills and unpaved trails.
