Using furs from 14 different mammals (badger, skunk, mink, coyote, etc.) gives a different perspective on how these animals survive.
You will have a chance to test your knowledge by participating in a number of
hands-on activities including “Guess the Critter.”

Digital Nature Photography for Kids:
Photography is a great way to take some memories home with you after a visit to a state park. Kids will get a chance to learn how to use a digital camera and receive ten tips on how to shoot better photos. To practice their new skills they will have a chance to shoot images of what they find interesting. Digital cameras are provided and the kids will be able to print one photo to take home.
