One of the most popular events at the Zion Nature Center will return to help young children ring in the New Year.

Noon Year’s Eve will provide an opportunity for families with children ages 3 to 8 to celebrate New Year’s without staying up until midnight.

The event will begin at 10 a.m. Dec. 31 with an owl presentation by Mark Booth of Take Flight. Guests will see and learn about owls Booth will bring to the center.

“There will also be owl-themed activities and a craft as well as chances to meet some of the Zion Nature Center animals,” said Mindy Murdock, Zion Nature Center manager.

Popular crafts from previous years will return, and an owl-themed project will be added. At noon, participants will have a countdown, balloon drop and toast to ring in 2018.

Pre-registration is required by contacting [email protected]. Murdock said registration is full, but a wait list is available in case of cancellations.
