Field Trips at State Forest

Wildlife Rehabilitation
Discover how staff at State Forest help rescue and rehabilitate inured or sick wild birds and other animals. Students will consider the ways humans impact these animals and their survival.

Students identify and predict how interactions with one species may affect many others, and how they can work to protect their habitats.

High tech hide-and-seek, students track down “caches” hidden in the park using GPS technology. Using interpretive displays at the Moose Visitor Center and other clues around the grounds, student must put their deductive reasoning, problem solving and math skills to the test as they search for the Land of Hidden Treasures Cache.

Interpretive Nature Hikes
Staff and volunteers offer a variety of customized interpretive hikes focusing on some of the following possible topics:

Beaver Ecology
Web of Life
Riparian Ecosystems
Birds of the Park
Bald Eagles
Rattlesnakes, and more!

Ice Fishing and Snowshoeing
As the snow falls in the high country, snowshoeing and crosscountry skiing replace summer hikes and nature walks. Many areas are available for snowshoeing such as The Gould Loop,
Grass Creek and The Loops Trails are groomed. Snow-shoes are available for check out at the visitor center.
