"This must be the place, Pa said. ... We've come a good half mile and there's the creek." One can't help but be drawn in to the magical world of what it must have been like to live in the 1800s on the vast and beautiful prairies and woodlands as only Laura Ingalls Wilder could tell it. On the banks of Plum Creek, the 4th of 9 books in her "Little House on the Prairie" series will be discussed by a roaring fire at Plum Creek Nature Center. Bring your favorite passages from any of her books or just come and enjoy the experience as we celebrate Laura Ingalls Wilder's 150th anniversary of her birth. A short night hike will be a part of the evening. A light snack and hot cocoa will be served. Activities will take place both inside the nature center and outdoors on natural surfaces across uneven terrain. For ages 18 or older.
