Mud Day playCornwall, NY –On Saturday, June, 26,  join the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum at the Outdoor Discovery Center location, on Muser Drive, across from 174 Angola Road, Cornwall to Celebrate International Mud Day with 45 minute play sessions from 10am-3:45pm.  Welcome Summer with a mud-riffic day of play in Grasshopper Grove! Join children in dozens of countries around the globe in celebrating this day of splashing, rolling, squishing, sliding, and appreciating nature and the great outdoors.

According to Nature Museum Educator Taylor O., “Mud Day allows children and parents to break loose from usual everyday restrictions, encouraging them to get dirty and messy in the mud. This can help foster a deeper physical connection to the natural world in a fun and creative way. And remember, Mud Day is not just for the kids!” Be sure to bring a towel, change of clothes, your imagination, and a sense of adventure to enjoy this day of summertime fun!
