As December draws to a close and the New Year arrives, there’s still plenty to do.
From rockin’ rollercoasters to candlelit hikes, we’ve got you and your family covered this New Year’s Eve.
If your kids like slimy salamanders, they have a place to check them out on Sunday. Salamander Sundays runs from 1 to 2:30 p.m. or 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Wood Lake Nature Center in Richfield.
The City of Richfield is three miles from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and surrounded by highways and interstates. Yet despite the bustling growth of this urban suburb over the years, the Richfield city planners carved out 150-acres of land in the middle of the city for a nature preserve in 1969, which is known as Wood Lake Nature Center today.
Nestled in the middle of the Twin Cities metro, Richfield offers easy access to the cities, but retains the small town feel with a population of less than 35,000.
