River Bend Nature Center
With the flip of a switch, more than 60,000 lights on more than 200 lighted displays will glitter and sparkle, bringing the sights and sounds of the season to adults and children. Our Nature Gift shop will be open for holiday shopping!
We are excited to announce that due to the generosity of donors, admission to ElectriCritters will be made free to the public again this year!
ElectriCritters is a fundraiser for River Bend Nature Center and directly supports River Bend’s hands-on natural science education and outreach programs for children and adults! River Bend is stroller and wheelchair accessible. River Bend is located at 2200 3rd St. near the main entrance to Lucy Park.
