Trailkeeper.org partners are offering a Treasures on Turtle Trail event!
Youth over the age of 8 and their families are invited on an after school adventure in the forest on Thursday, May 29, 2014 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.
This unique opportunity will be held at Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Sullivan County’s Turtle Spring Nature Trail on 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty. Participants will begin the journey by meeting in the CCE Gerald J. Skoda Extension Education Center building for a brief overview of the activity. Nicole Slevin, CCE Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math (STEM) Community Educator, will present to families the process of Geocaching and explain how GPS is used to discover hidden “treasures” when venturing outside onto the nearby trail. Pre-registration is required in advance to attend this program. Registration and more information can be obtained by calling CCE at 845-292-6180 or emailing Nicole Slevin at firstname.lastname@example.org. A donation of $5 per family is suggested to help support 4-H Youth Development programs. Participants should bring appropriate clothing and footwear for easy-to-moderate trail conditions.
