Craft Program at Shelter #2 from 10 to 11 a.m. GPS in the park: Enjoy the perfect combination of nature and technology. Pick up a list of coordinates at the park office for free. You can also go to http://tinyurl.com/c2bam64 and find cache coordinates in the park. We have rentals that include a GPS unit with some coordinates already loaded and instructions for use. The cost is $10 per day or $6.00 per half day and can be obtained at the contact station. Scavenger Hunt: Look for items commonly found in nature and check them off a list you can pick up from the Contact Station. You can also print a copy here: http://tinyurl.com/czignoh. Included on the list are items you can see, hear, feel, and smell. Do this as a group or family for even more fun. Bring your completed Scavenger Hunt list to the Contact Station (during regular business hours) for a prize! Park Packs: Check out a park pack to learn more about the fish, trees and birds you will see throughout the park. Packs are stocked with field guides, binoculars and other goodies to help you explore on your own. Packs can be checked out for up to three days on a first-come, first-served basis. The best part is they are FREE!
