Hunt Hill offers nature programming in a different format
SARONA - While the office at Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary, Sarona, may be closed due to the Governor's "Stay at Home" directive, the staff has stepped up to provide nature programming in a brand new format.
Hunt Hill recognizes how important it is to be in nature during times of stress. The sunlight, sounds, sights and scents in nature can relax and rejuvenate people. Hunt Hill has nearly 600 acres of varying habitats with over 13 miles along which to explore. Trails are open from sunrise to sunset. Some may still be snow or ice-covered, so wear appropriate footwear.
Sage Dunham, program director, has been creating Facebook Live nature programs at 1 p.m. weekdays.
Topics such as turtles, spiders and owl pellets have been covered with sustainability and plant weeks coming in the future. There's a joke of the day, fun facts and sometimes a craft project. These programs can also be watched on Facebook after the broadcast as well as at HuntHill.org. If you have any questions or topic suggestions, contact Sage at [email protected]
Our Discovery Trail, labeled Barred Owl Trail on trail maps, is a great experience for families! Each month Hunt Hill staff members hide eight to 15 themed items along this 1/3 mile trail. Similar to an ‘I Spy’ game, families are encouraged to hike the trail to see how many of the items they can find! An interactive Discovery Trail map is located in the kiosk compartments. Be sure to stop in the Farmhouse Office or tag #HuntHill on social media to be entered into our monthly giveaway!
