KIDS…UNLOCK YOUR INNER DETECTIVE
LOCATION CHANGED TO OUR CONSERVATION MANAGEMENT AREA
What’s hiding under those freshly fallen leaves? What’s going on in the trees? Let’s do some detective work and make some discoveries together!
To make the hike as exciting and kid friendly as possible, we have decided to change the location of our hike to the GSWA Conservation Management Area at 1 Tiger Lily Ln in Morristown.
It is also the perfect place to set off in hot pursuit of the region’s most-wanted autumn wildlife. Come learn how to identify animals from their tracks, scats (yes, poop) and other clues. Spy on secret hideouts used by birds, insects, and other woodland creatures. Discover the dining preferences of deer, raccoons, and even coyotes by putting a magnifying glass to some scat. All this detective work is easier than you think. And let’s face it, it’s fun being outdoors in the fall!
Recommended for all, but especially children 5 to 12 years old. We recommend wearing boots or shoes you don’t mind getting dirty. This event is free for our GSWA members. Non-members, a $10 donation for adults and $5 for children 6-17 is appreciated.
