Welcome to the Friends of Moreau Lake State Park VIRTUAL NatureFest 2020. As you are all aware, this year has been extremely challenging and downright scary for families across our region. Businesses have suffered, some have gone out of business and many if not all special events have been cancelled, ours included.

This year would have been our 23rd Annual NatureFest and to maintain our connection to the community and momentum of NatureFest, we are launching this website to connect you to some of the exhibitors who have provided a wealth of information, both educational and entertaining.

For several years now, NatureFest has been held the second weekend in September. Last year we had over 55 exhibitors with more than 2,000 visitors attending the event. We sold 800 hotdogs, engaged 30+ volunteers who contributed over 400 hours of service to make sure everyone had a fun filled and memorable experience.

Why?

Our Mission

To partner with Moreau Lake State Park to enrich the experience for every park visitor through environmental education, events and stewardship.

We are a 100% volunteer organization made up of community citizens who value and cherish the more than 7,000 acres of wild land in our backyard and want to ensure it remains healthy and intact for future generations to come.

We have many people to thank for their hard work in helping to put this together. Much of the content was created by volunteers who just wanted to share their experiences and knowledge about the park in an effort to inspire others. We hope you’ll agree.

We’re excited you stopped by, so please sign the Guestbook, check out the videos, games, and links, and let us know what you think! If you sign the guest book you’ll automatically be entered into a drawing for a gift card.

Thank you for your visit, be safe and enjoy!
