Celebrate Chinese New Year at Harriet Alexander Nature Center

Come celebrate the Year of the Dog at the Harriet Alexander Nature Center Open House on Sunday, Feb. 18, 12:30-4:30 p.m. Even wild dogs can’t pull you away from all the great dog-related activities you will find. Compare wolves, coyotes and foxes with the dogs we keep as pets, and discover their relatives around the world. Meet real-life dogs with jobs just like in Paw Patrol, make a dog family paw print card, and try out hot dog treats. All while enjoying some of the fun customs of Chinese New Year.

There will be a craft project and traditional Chinese New Year treats to enjoy. Check out the nature center’s displays, including the fabulous indoor tree feature and explore the boardwalk out in the marsh.

The HANC open house is held on the same day as the annual open house at its parking lot neighbor, the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. This is a once-a-year opportunity to peek behind the scenes at this very busy animal “hospital.”

The Harriet Alexander Nature Center, an oasis of natural beauty and tranquility nestled within the borders of Roseville, is located at 2520 N. Dale St. For driving directions or more information go to www.cityofroseville.com/HANC or call 651-765-4262.
