Families invited to meet the local night wildlife

June 20, 2013 by  

The ‘Family Campfire Adventure’ is designed for children between the ages of five and twelve who must be accompanied by an adult during the evening.

The family-friendly event is being held in a natural setting where children can learn about nocturnal animals that hunt at night. Printing services, poster printing, and flyer printing may have been selected to promote this camp to families in this region and in this community.

Children and their parents will have the opportunity to explore this park setting under the guidance of the Friends of Tryon Creek. As they do so, they will learn all about the carnivores, mainly canine, that reside in this park, as well as learn how to track these nocturnal and elusive creatures, with two of the most common being the fox and the coyote.

After the guided hike, children will play a number of learning and tracking games, learn how to build a campfire, and enjoy making delicious s’mores to consume. Registration is required for this event as space is limited.

The cost is $6 per person, including the adult. The Family Campfire Adventure will be occurring on Tuesday, June 25, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Tryon Creek State Natural Area located at 11321 S. W. Terwilliger Blvd. in Portland, Oregon. To learn more about the hike, or to register, please visit the Tryon Creek State Natural Area website, the Family Campfire Adventure website, or call 877-225-5803 during normal park hours.
