Halloween Hike: Get the Scoop on Scat!

Saturday, October 6th; First hike leaves at 6:30 pm 

Prepare for a night of adventure and laughter as you journey along luminary lit trails at Virginia Grove Recreation Area.  Louisa County Conservation staff and volunteers have created a series of fun and educational, family friendly skits for you to view.  

 

The theme this year is "Get the Scoop on Scat!" Animals leave behind signs of their presence like feathers, fur, and even waste. That's right, this year's hike is all about what animals leave behind after eating. It might seem a little icky but, whether you call it scat, droppings, turds, or poo, it really is fascinating stuff! This is sure to be an amusing, entertaining, educational trek through the woods.

 

Hikes leave every 10 minutes - RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED beginning Sept. 4, 2018!

Reservations can be made online! Or call the office at 319-523-8381 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Volunteers are needed to act as trail guides, direct traffic, make costumes, act in skits, provide refreshments, and set out, light and remove luminaries. Call today to volunteer!
