Nature’s Centerpieces


12/19/2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A nature program called “Nature Centerpieces” will be 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 19 at the Hannibal Arts Council, 105 S. Main St.
Gale Rublee, nature educator for Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department, said the program will focus on the Winter Solstice, which occurs on Dec. 21, 2021, in the Northern Hemisphere, this date marks the shortest day of the year. “Many traditions honor the Winter Solstice by bringing greenery and other nature items into the home as a symbol of the sun and longer days,” Rublee said.
She asked that participants have fun collecting pine cones, cedar or pine branches, dried grasses, twigs, acorns, driftwood, sea shells “or any other item that strikes your fancy.”
There will be some nature items at the Arts Council. Rublee said the program will allow the items to be brought together into a Solstice centerpiece. “Bring some wire cutters or clippers if you have them,” she said.

Scavenger Hunts

The Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department has developed Scavenger Hunts to encourage visitors to the Hannibal parks. Hannibal children, along with visitors to Hannibal, will have a chance to explore our parks in a different way. These free activities allow participants to learn more about Hannibal Parks and to earn a free treat from a local business in the process!

Here are the scavenger hunts available so far (check back for future additions).
