Ballard Park Winter Hike

The Friends of Ballard Park will host a winter hike on Saturday, Jan. 25 from 10-11 a.m. Naturalist Charles Avenengo and Friends of Ballard Park educator Jaclyn Lewandowski will guide the hike, pointing out animal tracks and evidence of winter dwellers along the trails and in the threeacre quarry meadow. They will also discuss survival techniques animals use during the winter months.

Ballard Park is located on the corner of Hazard and Wickham roads directly across from Rogers High School. Hikers should meet at the Hazard Road entrance. Dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes as trails are uneven and steep in areas. If you have binoculars bring them along.

There is a suggested donation of $5 per person and $15 for a group. Reserve at education@ballardpark.org. Drop-ins welcome. In event of inclement weather, the hike will be held on Saturday, Feb. 1. Visit ballardpark.org or call 401-619-3377 for more information.
