OCTOBER 3 EVENT REPORT-SUNNY DAY LOTS OF FUN

Scavenger Hunt A Definite Success!

More than 100 people participated in the “socially distanced” nature scavenger hunt on Saturday, October 3rd. Hunters were given a list of things to find along the Orange and Blue Trails between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. It was a beautiful day as fall colors were starting to appear among the trees and everyone seemed to have a good time.

HOW IT WORKED: Participants located the items on the checklist and checked them off. Upon conclusion of the hunt, they took a selfie with the Forks of Coal State Natural Area sign and their completed lists. Then they submitted the photo to our Facebook event page to be entered in the drawing door prizes.

Items to be found included animal tracks, fungi, 2 benches, a bat house, a beaver-gnawed tree and several things unique to the Forks of Coal State Natural Area. Ten (10) prize winners were identified after results were tallied.

SECOND ANNUAL FIRST DAY HIKE PLANNED

A “socially distanced” 2021 First Day hike is being planned for this coming New Year’s Day. This will provide an opportunity for hikers to preview the exterior of the new  Claudia L. Workman Wildlife Education Center and enjoy some fellowship outdoors, along with hot chocolate, cider and cookies. Starting time will be announced in December.
