PONCA – There’s still plenty to do at Ponca State Park moving further into the month of November.
According to a release, a trio of events are scheduled for Saturday, November 12.
First, learn how owls swallow their prey whole and then regurgitate the undigestible material, being an owl pellet. This event will last from 10 – 10:45 a.m. on Saturday.
Participants will be given an owl pellet to investigate, dissect and ID. Pre-register at the Resource and Education Center. Meet behind the Resource & Education Center as cost is $2 per kit.
Introduction to archery will then take over Saturday afternoon from 1 – 3 p.m. Learn how to shoot like Katniss or Robin Hood as all equipment is provided. Youth must be five and older with adult supervision. Meet and pay at the Eric Wiebe Shooting Complex as cost is $1 per six arrows.
Throughout the day, make plans to join in on the fun of the ‘Bloodroot Trail Gnome Hunt’. Explore this family friendly trail and search for the 10 gnomes hidden amongst the trees. This trail is approximately one mile and rated easy. Officials ask that participants leave the gnomes on the trail for others to enjoy.
Other events include Bingos/Scavenger Hunts/Passports; Search for Sasquatch; Ponca Packs; Old Oak Trail Self-guided Hike, Fishing Tackle Loaner Program and Beginner Mountain Bike Trail (located behind campsite G8).
