Eggs, chicken and pork products will be available to purchase. Please bring cash or credit card if you are interested in making a purchase.

The mission of this family nature club is to help families in Lynchburg expose their children to the wonderful benefits of the outdoors. And, to meet other like-minded families. FILA events are scheduled monthly, open to all ages and typically free unless there is a cost associated with a partnering organization. Events may include hikes, canoeing, campfire cookouts, nature scavenger hunts, visiting a local state or national park, camping, etc.
