A flock of brown pelicans flies above the estuary at MacArthur Beach State Park on Tuesday, April 5, 2016. Oysters, crabs, mullets and manatees are among the creatures who call the estuary home.

Who says napping and football are the only ways to enjoy a Sunday afternoon in September?

MacArthur Beach State Park has a few rewards for those willing to wander away from the TV and electronic screens in search of fresh air and sunshine.

Willie Allen will bring his brand of folk music to the park from 1-3 p.m. The Indiana native describes himself as a one-man band whose first love is folk music. His influences include the other Willie (Nelson), Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Joan Baez and Peter, Paul and Mary.

When you’ve had enough twang and dipped your toes in the ocean, join a ranger-led walk from 4 to 5 p.m. You’ll learn about the species of birds in the park. BYOB (B for binoculars) or rent them in the gift shop. Reservations are recommended. Call the Nature Center at 561-624-6952 to make them.

The programs are free with the $5 per vehicle cost of park admission.
