A haunted trail in the ravine…

Trek ‘n Treat • Oct. 15th • 1 – 4 pm • Grant Park Area 5

Families were invited to “view the haunts of nature” in Grant Park, South Milwaukee, on Sunday, October 15th from 1 – 4 pm. Friends of Grant Park sponsored an educational/fundraiser event called Trek ‘n Treat.  Participants followed the trails through the 7 Bridges area to approximately 15 stations in the park, answered nature related questions, and received treats along the way! The long route meandered through the ravine, the short route was an accessible option.  In Shelter 5A there were refreshments, pumpkin painting, birding information and other activities related to the park and its unique habitat.

A big time thank you to some great volunteers who made this happen. We had help this year from the South Milwaukee National Honor Society, Leo’s, Link Crew, Middle School Volunteens, South Milwaukee Historical Society, and Special Olympic Athletes.
