Auburn University’s Kreher Preserve and Nature Center presents S’more Fun with Mom, Lee County’s mother/son adventure.
“S’more Fun is a fun and exciting tradition for mothers and sons in our community,” said Michael Buckman, center manager. “It is a wonderful evening where moms and sons can connect and spend some quality time together in an educational and fun, outdoor environment.”
S’more Fun with Mom includes a full evening of activities. Patrons will begin with a special craft activity to create a keepsake art project and have access to a photographer to get memorable photos. Then, a cookout dinner will be served including hotdogs, chips, fresh fruit and lemonade. And finally, a guided group hike will lead patrons down some of Kreher’s trails and lead back to the fire pit for roasting marshmallows, making smores and listening to a fantastic storyteller to close out the evening.
“Traditionally, S’more Fun has been offered only two days, but this year, we are very excited to add a third day and make it a Family Night,” Buckman said. “We have had request from many dads in the community who want to join the fun with their children; or moms who only have daughters. This year, the whole family is welcome to join on Family Night.”
S’more Fun Family Night is Thursday, May 5, and is open to the entire family — children under 3 do not need a ticket. S’more Fun with Mom is Friday and Saturday, May 6 and 7 and is for boys aged 4 to 12 and their moms. All three nights start at 6:00 p.m. and wrap up by 8:30 p.m. The cost is $30 per parent/child duo and $10 each for any additional children.
