We're running two programs:

Forest Friday Hike: Explore the forests of Scanlon Creek led by the people who know them best. Look for signs of spring or animal tracks in the snow, identify a sugar maple tree and learn how to tap them for maple sap, meet the friendly Scanlon chickadees and watch other wild birds, try out kick sledding (weather dependent). 

Family Geocaching Challenge: Learn about geocaching and then try it out for yourself in the fun geocaching challenge. Participants will borrow a Garmin GPS unit and learn how to use it to uncover hidden geocaches in the forest at Scanlon. 


All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to attend. Programs are best suited for children over the age of 6, however all ages are welcome to join us.

If you require an accessibility accommodation, please email​ at least 7 days prior to the event.
