Something Spooky happened on October 10th!

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.

      No, this is not guided, but the route follows trails that are marked with bright colored arrows through the ravine, and other Trek ‘n Treaters will be walking the same route. You should be able to follow others if you’re unfamiliar with the park’s trails. Come anytime between 1 and about 3 pm… so you still have an hour to walk through before the event comes to a close. Another reminder is that we cannot accept charge cards for payment or purchases. Please use cash only.
