July 13, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Did you know that Waushara County has a resident bear population? Do you know what to do if you encounter a bear while hiking?
Learn about Wisconsin’s Black Bear from Environmentalist and Educator, Scott Toutant, of Princeton, as he shares his enthusiasm for all things Nature and former DNR Park Ranger, Randy Lennartz, will share stories of his experiences and encounters with bears while living and working for 20 years in northern Wisconsin’s “Bear Country”.
Mark your calendar for Saturday July 13th from 10:00am to 12:00pm. This 2.0-mile long guided hike will be on the Ice Age Trail and other trails around the Bohn Lake State Natural Area near Hancock. Meet at the accessible trail parking lot on 9th Avenue – approx. one quarter mile north of County Rd “C”. Watch for event signs.
This is the second of three extra guided summer hikes planned for the “Walk-The-Waush” Challenge. If you haven’t registered yet, it’s not too late! Check out the Facebook Event page for challenge details, register, post photos and start logging your miles for a chance to win prizes and awards.
