Self Guided Activities

During these challenging times our staff (Natalie Haley), along with one of our awesome volunteers (Belinda Lewis), have been developing ideas for things you can do at the parks that do not require a Naturalist to lead the hike. Here are a few… we’ll add more as they get done. Now obviously if we’re told NOT to leave home we should listen. Keep in mind our Nature Centers are closed BUT we do have restrooms available.

iNATURALIST.org  Download the app at this site and share what you observe at the parks. There is already a project setup for Fox Island County Park (click here), more soon.

Run a race with yourself – Go out and compete with yourself on a 5K or 3.5 Mi. Run. Click here to follow the routes taken at Fox Island for the Annual Turkey Trot and the Fox On The Run races. The competition will be stiff since you’re running against yourself, but think of it this way, you know all the other contestants!! 🙂  Turkey Trot Map  Fox On the Run Map
