The weather finally cooperated and gave us a nice (if breezy) day for getting out and looking for antler sheds.
We were all able to warm up around a fire and enjoy hot dogs and roasted marshmallows to keep our energy up for some hiking and exploring in the woods.
Easter Egg Hunt?? Nope! Participants of all ages walked along the creek near Creekside Commons Park in North Liberty, looking for shed antlers, animals tracks, birds, the occasional mushroom, and other wonders of nature!
One of the nicest features of this park is that it amply demonstrates what can be found in your own backyard! Here at a location that is often no more than a few feet from a local housing development, participants found plenty to explore and signs of everything from deer to bald eagles to raccoons and more!
