Fall nature and photo scavenger hunt
Sunday, September 22, 2019
Join author and educator Wendy Gorton for a fall scavenger and photo hunt to Pool of the Winds along the Hamilton Mountain Trail at Beacon Rock State Park. Parents and caregivers: bring your phones to learn how to use a free app to identify plants we find along the trail to complete our hunt. Another part of this outing will involve a nature journaling extravaganza. Nature journals and pens will be provided for all participants to reflect and record their discoveries. We'll also visit a local geocache hidden along the trail.
This family-friendly hike takes you up a steep but beautifully forested climb to three tiers of waterfalls. The round-trip hike is 2.5 miles with a 440-foot elevation gain.
