Falltastic Trail Walk

WACF TrailIn 2015, the first annual Falltastic Trail Walk was held over a cold October weekend. Approximately 100 community members participated in the self guided event. The board chose to enhance the typical fall colors tour with educational materials describing what animals, amphibians, trees and other organisms do to prepare for winter. Visitors also learned how the fall and winter seasons contribute to lake quality. Other materials explain how wetlands improve water quality and reduce flooding. Participants could walk the trail at their own pace, sit on a bench, listen to the sounds of nature, or read the informational posters. A crackling fire and refreshments were waiting in the Ruddell Pavilion for those who finished the walk.  The scenic trails at the WACF Center are open to the public year-round at no charge.

Falltasic Trail Walk 2016 was held on Saturday October 15 and/or Sunday October 16 from noon to 3 PM.
