Bowie Nature Park is resuming programming in October.

“We are excited to be offering programming again!”

That was the announcement shared by Bowie Nature Park staff upon announcing new programs coming up this fall. This is the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic was announced that the City of Fairview has offered new programs in the nature park – and they are free!
