All Ranger Workshops will take place at Otter Falls Trails at 1:30pm. Bring a snack, water, and appropriate shoes and clothing for the weather. Please do not bring pets to these workshops.


Camouflage

Thursday, June 4th at 1:30 pm
How many times have you walked pass something and not realized it was there until it was pointed out to you or it moved? Chances are pretty good this has happened to you and if so this program is for you. Join Ranger Sicard to learn the many ways animals use camouflage in the wild and also how to be more attentive when hiking out on the trails to notice more neat things than what is right on the trail.


Map and Compass

Friday, July 10th at 1:30 pm
Come join Ranger Sicard to learn in a fun environment how to use a compass and map. Please bring a regular compass or a compass app downloaded onto your phone. Participants will learn how to take bearings on the compass and follow it. These bearings will lead to places that are also identifiable on the maps which will be given at the beginning of the program. Please have your compass preloaded before arriving to the program if using one on the phone.


Streamside Ecology

Friday, August 7th at 1:30pm
Meet Ranger Sicard at the Otter Falls Trail to learn about some of the amphibians and critters living in this environment. During this program we will be hiking down to the falls and back up with the option to get in the water to look for critters of all kinds and identify them once discovered. If planning to get in the water, please wear or bring shoes you do not mind getting wet. Participants do not have to get in the water to learn and see the critters we find.
