October 18 & 19 Enchanted Forrest - Great Fun Had by All

18 Oct 2014 6:00 PM | Randy Streufert (Administrator)

The Park's Enchanted Forrest event during the nighttime hours October 18 and 19 provided a unique opportunity to see the park at night.  In spite of the wind and cool weather, over 150 participated.  The children especially enjoyed the campfire, story telling, and meeting two larger than life creatures (an owl and a frog) while taking a guided walk.   Both told the young hikers about their environment, food and behavior.  The hikers also got a presentation on the mammals in the park by park staff.  The more adventuresome went on a guided walk deeper into the woods and learned from the staff about how the sense of hearing, smell, touch and eyesight adapted to the darkness and quiet of the forest.  The Friends provided assistance and two of our own directors had the fun of being in the owl and frog costumes and seeing the wide-eyed expressions of wonderment on the young children's faces.
