Trek ‘n Treat 2021
The Friends of Grant Park hosted our popular Trek ‘n Treat event on Sunday, Oct. 10th, from 1 to 4 pm. We had about 230 costumed vampires, princesses and super heroes participate along with their families. Candy treats, apples, popcorn and cider were available. Tiny pumpkins were painted by some to take home. Everyone had fun, until it rained. Nature is always in charge.
The family-friendly educational event was a Halloween-themed nature walk through the Seven Bridges trails, starting out from Area 5 parking lot. “View the haunts of nature” in the 7 Bridges area, learn about the forest and get treats!
We had special help from the following individuals: Brooke Gilley, Emilie Hund Burmeister, Rita Flores Wiskowski, Carla Uphill, Mike Minter, Lois Schreiter and friend, Eunice Beckendorf.
Student volunteers were plentiful, thanks to: Stephanie Broussard, St. John’s Brookfield; Darla Wack, SM Leo Club; Elizabeth Biskobing, SM National Honor Society; and Laura Krause, Oak Creek High School National Honor Society.
