Multiple events will be held at Crowder State Park west of Trenton during the month of March. Park Superintendent Anna Persell says there will be two hikes.
A Saint Patrick’s Day Scavenger Hunt will start at the Shelter 3 parking lot on March 17th at 4 o’clock, and the hunt will be on a portion of Tall Oaks Trail.
Persell says participants can keep the items hidden along the trail. The items will have a Saint Patrick’s Day theme.
Prizes will be awarded to the child and adult who find the most correct items hidden along the trail. The prizes will be from a collection of souvenirs from the Crowder State Park office.
The End of Winter Hike March 12th, Spring into Spring Hike March 20th, and scavenger hunt on March 17th are free and open to the public. Persell encourages participants to bring water and wear closed-toe, comfortable shoes. Park staff are excited about spring and hope people will attend events planned at the park this year.
If events are canceled or postponed due to inclement weather, notice will be posted on the Crowder State Park website and Facebook page.
