Stories Under the Cottonwood

Caterpillars on a leaf.

Join us for Stories Under the Cottonwood Tree, at The Rio Grande Nature Center State Park. 

Stories Under the Cottonwood Tree will be offered at 10:30 am on the third Saturday of each month (weather permitting).

This is a participatory story session filled with fun natural history facts, songs, poems, and stories for the tall and the small, especially for those aged 5 to 10 years old. Children should always bring their own adult, so they can enjoy the fun, too! 

Aside from the Park Day-Use Fee, there is no additional charge for this program.  The Park Day-Use Fee is $3.00 per vehicle exact cash or check (Friends of the RGNC permit holders and NM State Parks annual permit holders enter free with valid permit displayed).
