Forest Park Adventure – Part II

Friday, November 4, 2011 @ 4:00 PM-6:30 PM

4:00 pm – 5:00 p.m.

Geocaching is often described as a “game of high-tech hide and seek”, sharing many aspects with orienteering and treasure-hunting! There are geocaches on every continent, from Antarctica to North America.

Join us as we divide into groups in the hunt for the Forest Park treasure! GPS will be provided for use during this event. Every student will take home a treasure!

Followed by:

5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Owl Prowl

Led by Academy of Science – BioBlitz Citizen Scientist Awardee, Mark Glenshaw, students will be forever on the lookout for the Great Horned Owl in your own backyard!

Glenshaw has closely observed and documented a mated pair of Great Horned Owls in Forest Park for more than five years. Find out where the owls “hid” during some of the great St. Louis storms! Wear sneakers or hiking boots as we follow the Forest Park Owl Trail. His work has been featured in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, St. Louis Magazine and Show-Me Missouri. Read more–Forest Park Owls
