November 29, 2012

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will offer a special children's event at the Cacapon State Park in Morgan County from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8.

The event will be for those ages 6 to 9. Participants will learn how to use Global Positioning System (GPS) devices to locate Geocaches in the park, and in the process learn how animals hunt for food in our forests.

This event is part of a new program, called "Outdoor Explore!," which is intended to give youngsters a better understanding and appreciation of the natural world in a safe, supervised way.

Activities include hiking, exploration of different local habitats, plant and animal identification, and other natural science activities.

Enrollment will be limited to ensure that all children receive personal attention, and advance registration is required.

To register or for more information go to at www.potomacaudubon.org or contact Ellen Murphy at 304-676-8739 or ellen@potomacaudubon.org.
