Nature’s Noel is unlike any other community event in the Corridor. This long-running, beloved holiday fundraiser and family fun day takes place annually on the first Saturday in December at Indian Creek Nature Center. Guests come to shop for wreaths, tree toppers, and other holiday decor that’s lovingly handmade with fresh, fragrant greens by Friends of the Nature Center members. Frozen soups and appetizers, baked goods, and artisan vendors round out the holiday market. Nature’s Noel is not just for holiday shoppers looking for unique gifts and decor, however. It also features an array of fun activities so the whole family can come out and enjoy a day at the Nature Center together. Children’s crafts, nature walks, visits with Santa, face painting and more all take place at Indian Creek Nature Center’s Amazing Space campus.
