Woodland Hikes On Sunday Afternoons
For the family
It’s impressive today that young people can enjoy activities on manufactured playgrounds, manicured ball fields and climate-controlled indoor facilities. It’s remarkable that they can be stimulated and challenged by a virtual world of exciting video games. Living in Eastman, however, it would be a shame to ignore the opportunities that our woodland surroundings offer for simple discovery of nature and wilderness adventure.
With this in mind, the Woodlands & Wildlife Committee invites young people and their families to participate in a new program it will offer this summer. Woodland Hikes On Sunday Afternoons (WHOSA) will be a series of scheduled Sunday afternoon hikes on Eastman trails. WHOSA guides will be Woodlands & Wildlife volunteers, who will set a moderate pace interspersed with stops to answer questions and comment. Along the way they will help look for and identify signs of wildlife, remnants from the past and different trees and plants.
Look for WHOSA announcements of times, places and other particulars. They will be posted on the Woodlands & Wildlife bulletin board at South Cove and listed in Eastman Highlights.
