Audubon Park recreational activities

Wednesday, December 31

Activities include naturalist and storyteller John Tierney relating some eastern Kentucky legends, including the real story of the Hatfield/McCoy feud.

Here’s the schedule:


6 p.m. — Fishing Fun. Equipment provided. Location: Meet at the boat dock. All ages are welcome, but children younger than 12 must be accompanied by an adult, and those 16 and older must have a valid Kentucky fishing license to fish. Free.

11 a.m. — “Snakes Alive!” Paint your own articulated snake. Location: Campground Shelter. All ages. Cost: $1 per snake.

4 p.m. — Leaf Printing. Pound away your frustrations while you learn about the variety of trees that thrive in the campground, and take home a print that you might want to frame. Location: Campground Shelter. All ages. Free.

6 p.m. — “The Great Vendetta: The Hatfield-McCoy Feud.” Arguably, the most famous and bitter family feud, waged between the Kentucky McCoys and the West Virginia Hatfields, this feud spurred deep disputes in the late 1800s between two states before eventually going before the Supreme Court.

Transport yourself to post-Civil War Appalachia with storyteller John Tierney. Location: Campground Shelter. All ages. Free.
