BRISTOL – If you’re looking for a cure for cabin fever this might help.
On Saturday those looking for a fun way to beat the winter doldrums are invited to learn the art of animal tracking on a guided hike at Bonneyville Mill County Park near Bristol.
From 1–2:45 p.m., visitors are invited to gather around the hearth at Briar Patch Shelter in the park, and get a crash course in wildlife tracking, with an overview of the fauna found in the Elkhart County area, and identification guides to take home.
The group will then bundle up and head out for a short outdoor investigation to crack some of these cold cases and reveal the critters behind the clues.
The Wildlife Track Trek is free and open to ages 8+ with no registration required. Participants are encouraged to dress for activities outdoors.
Hikers will meet at the Briar Patch Shelter, located 2.5 miles east of Bristol on C.R. 8 in Bonneyville Mill County Park.
