Kids, Berries & a Bear


An energetic group of young hikers from a Montessori class toured around Paradise Meadows today with their teachers & parents – learning a few tips about Leave No Trace principles, as well as learning about some edible berries & checking out birds & fish in the streams.

Among recent wildlife sightings, a Northern Harrier was added to the bird list, and a Black Bear was reported in the vicinity of Hairtrigger Lake – running away from hikers!

Several clothing items have been added to the Lost & Found box, along with the usual hats, sunglasses & water bottles – please stop in to claim any items, otherwise they are donated to a thrift store at the end of the season.
