Christmas Tree Decorating Party
To kick off the festive holiday season, Heartland Forest hosted a Christmas Tree Decorating Party on December 16. Children, families, friends and visitors came out and added their own personalized ornament to the giant 12 ft tree. Adding to the event, children joined in stringing popcorn, decorating cup cakes, hiking through the forest and in the spirit of the holidays, enjoyed hot chocolate around the open campfire. Donations were gratefully accepted and all proceeds will benefit the on-going programs at the forest. Dan Bouwman, all the staff and friends at Heartland Forest wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
