Hiking & Letterboxing

Hiking and letter boxing will start back up tomorrow. 1pm at the Polichetti's. Bring your hiking book and letter stamp book. We will complete the hiking book for the grange and start a poster for the letterboxing for the grange. We will also look up letterboxes in the area and decide where to go on our next hike.

Hiking and Letter boxing will meet monthly until the weather gives out on us, most likely November will be our last hike. (Unless we have brave souls that want to keep going) We will travel to local parks and search for these treasures in the forest. Other plans include having a guest leader plan a day to fill other 4-h projects relating to insects and birds in the wild. We will also make a trail mix at one of the meetings. Everyone is welcome to join and always welcome to bring a guest! Our walks also provide beautiful scenery for photographers.

There is no cost for the project, just wear comfortable walking shoes and bring water to keep hydrated.

Please email Mrs. P. if you are interested and haven't yet signed up.
