SEBRING — Highlands Hammock State Park is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month & Literacy Days on October 7. Story lovers of all ages are invited to attend a bilingual story hour featuring warm and lively readings of stories, poems, folk tales and songs in English and Spanish which will delight adults as well as children. The story hour is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Civilian Conservation Corps Museum. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
This event is a celebration of family life for all park visitors, no matter what their language and age and a wonderful opportunity for sharing across generations. Following the readings, families may participate in nature activities and a ‘history detective’ scavenger hunt, hike the trails and explore the park. Park entry fees of $4 per single occupant vehicle and $6 per vehicle (up to eight people) apply. In recognition of Literacy Days, park entry fees will be waived for visitors who present a library card, library book, or donate a new or gently used, family appropriate book to the park’s Little Free Library on October 7 and October 8.
Highlands Hammock is located at 5931 Hammock Road in Sebring. For more information, call the Ranger Station at 863-386-6094.
