August Programs


Thursday, August 8 - Preserving Summer’s Bounty

There’s something special about planting a garden, harvesting and then enjoying the fruits of your labor. But how can you enjoy your produce year round? We’ll discuss several different methods of preserving including freezing, proper storage, jams, and canning. There are more ways than you might think!

Friday, August 9 - S’more’s Day Campfire

As far back as 1925, this delicious, sticky and gooey treat has been loved by millions across the United States. Today there are many variations to the original S’more. Visit the Town of Zionsville’s Facebook page August 1 - 8 and vote for your favorites! Then join us during our S’more’s Day Campfire to taste the winners. Registration is required as space is limited. 

Saturday, August 17 - Old Fashioned Bug Hunt

It’s an old fashioned summer bug hunt. Bring your insect net or borrow one of ours. We’ll meet in Elm Street Green to see what crawls, flies and buzzes among the meadow wildflowers. Long pants are recommended.

Sunday, August 25 - Monthly Dog Walk 

  • When: 3 – 4 p.m.
