Pollinator Festival

Our Pollinator Festival is fun way to enjoy and learn about the birds, bees, beetles, and other animals that give us the plants we so enjoy! The weekend offers family friendly programs, free pollinator goodies, and many vendors including native plant sellers who can help you turn your own garden into a pollinator haven.

Pollinator Festival takes place every year on the first weekend in August. For this year’s festival flier, click here. For updates and details on this event, and others, follow Richland County Park District on Facebook.




Rock and Fossil Day

Rock and Fossil Day takes place the second Saturday in May of each year. This event is sponsored by the Richland Lithic and Lapidary Society and hosts many vendors and special programs by local rock and mineral experts. The day includes adult and kid friendly programs and displays, and provides opportunities for identifying and purchasing gems, rocks, and fossils.
