Something Dirty

Get messy at Mudfest

Want to have some wild fun with your family, get a little bit messy and learn at the same time? Of course, you do! So check out Mudfest from noon–5 p.m. Aug. 27 at the Kalamazoo Nature Center, 7000 N. Westnedge Ave.

The event, for those in fourth grade and older, will let participants dig into a giant mud pit, zoom down a giant Slip ’N Slide, play in the Natural Play Area, enjoy learning stations and, if they’re brave, give the zip line a try. Make sure to wear close-toed shoes and clothes you’re OK with getting really dirty.

The cost for the event is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors, $4 for children ages 4–17 and free for children 3 and younger and KNC members.
