LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Bernheim Forest is offering a cool way for your dog to enjoy nature while avoiding the heat of the summer.

It's hosting "Paws in Nature" on Saturday, June 3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event allows people to treat their dogs to the splash zone between other free activities. Those include a kissing booth photo station, an obedience training course, parkour for dogs, agility training, a dog scavenger hunt, a treat cooking demonstration and more.

There will also be vendors and local artists on hand.

While the event is free, a $15 donation per car at the gate to Bernheim is appreciated, organizers said.

Bernheim said more than 12,000 dogs visit the forest with their owners each year.
