What is "Walk in the Forest" all about?  Professional foresters and natural resource specialists will have several interesting and informative stations set up along a roughly westward half-mile section of the Spring Creek Trail at Lake Arcadia. They will share the story of the forest and provide some fascinating activities for folks of all ages. Our goals are to help you better understand and appreciate the wonderful forest in your home community, to learn about trees and forests, and become aware about the diversity of uses, values, goods and services that trees and forests provide.

Please dress appropriately for the weather ("rain or shine") and wear sturdy shoes. The "Walk in the Forest" will take about an hour if you stop at each station and get involved in each activity, but you can walk at your own pace and spend any amount of time that you desire. There are options to walk additional trails for those eager and willing.

Educational brochures and other cool giveaways will also be available while supplies last.
