    Help us get our pollinator garden ready for spring pollinators. Plants must have bees to pollinate, making them indispensable to our ecosystems. There are almost 400,000 flowering plant species, and 90% of them depend on insect pollination. As pollinators vanish, the effect on the well-being and viability of crops and native plants can be catastrophic. We simply cannot survive without bees and other pollinator insects. All ages are free to help. Activities include litter pickup, mulching, and weeding. You bring the muscle and Douthat State Park will bring the tools.

    Be a part of our 5th Annual Campsite Cook-off Oktoberfest. This is no ordinary cook-off and it will put your creativity to the test. What makes this such a unique event? The meat for the cook-off will be provided by the park but participants will not know the type of meat until it is time to cook. Cooks must supply their own secret seasonings to make their dish a standout. Teams will be given the meat Friday evening to prepare overnight. Tastings will follow on Saturday. Live music will be available for both participants and spectators to enjoy. There is limited space so teams must pre-register. Registration will open at 9 a.m. on March 2. To register or for the rules and regulations, please call the park at 540-862-8114. For spectators, entry into the event will be $10 per person. Craft artisans and food vendors will also be onsite.
