Lake Thoreau Upcoming Events

2018 Spider Night Hike for Adults, September 28th

Are you terrified of spiders? Of course you are because you are normal.  Nevertheless, you can come and face your fears as we hike around Lake Thoreau at night and watch fearless spider experts wrangle some of the coolest spiders in south Mississippi.  If you are too terrified to walk around the woods in the dark, then you can stay in our Educational Center and watch a solid soider-themed B-movie.  Either way you cannot help but have fun because this event (as always) is sponsored by your friendly neighborhood brewery, Southern Prohibition.  $10 admission covers food, beverages, and all the spiders you can handle.  This event is free for Friends of Lake Thoreau.  Admission is limited to victims/patrons that are 21 years old and up. Proceeds go to support Lake Thoreau Environmental Center.








2018 Rattler Ramble, October 6th

Join us October 6th for one of the most unique 5K experiences in Mississippi!  The Annual Rattler Ramble Trail 5K Run/Hike is almost here and registration is open.  The Rattler Ramble follows a course around hiking trails at the Lake Thoreau Environmental Center including areas that are usually not open to the public. This is a trail run so expect hills and maybe a splash of mud depending on weather.  Pre-registration starts at 2:00 p.m. and the race will begin at 3:00 P.M. Join us for one of the toughest 5Ks in the Pine Belt!
