A Free Family Event at Houston's Trailhead Park

This fun family event was started by the Root River Trail Towns organization as a way to celebrate the Root River Bike Trail by featuring the small river valley towns it connects. On Saturday, September 23 we celebrate the towns of Houston and Rushford. 

Library StoryWalk: 10am-11am

As part of the Taste of the Trail celebration, the Houston Public Library will be hosting a very special mobile storytime where you will
explore the nature center grounds as you walk from one page of
the book to the next - reading as you go!

Live Music from The Ilika Ward Duo 12:30pm-2:30pm

Local musicians, Jake Ilika and Joel Ward will be this year's Taste of the Trail
musical entertainement. Playing a variety
of originals and covers, these two talented musicians 
have a tune for everyone! They are a great addition to any outdoor get-together. Come on down and enjoy the show!
