LCCD, Hinterland to hold GPS ‘Hike and Seek’

LEE COUNTY – Lee County Conservation and Hinterland Dairy are excited to present our first ever “Hike and Seek” event from the Dairy to Wilson Lake Park on Saturday, October 9th. This is a family-focused event, and all ages are welcome to participate in this geocache-style scavenger hunt and enjoy the great outdoors all in one!
Participants are invited to stop by Hinterland Dairy between 9 a.m. and noon to register and receive their instructions and GPS coordinates, then they will put the coordinates into the “Maps” app on their phone, and follow the trail to Wilson Lake Park in search of the hidden items and to solve a word scramble. Once the mystery is solved, they will head back to the Dairy to receive their prize – delicious ice cream!
“Lee County Conservation and Wilson Lake have been great neighbors to us, and we’re happy to work with them on this project for the “Places to Play” fundraiser,” Colleen Krogmeier, co-owner of Hinterland Dairy said. “Wilson Lake is such a wonderful park, and we want to bring awareness of it to the community while having this fun family event.”
The cost for this event is $5/person (age 3+), payable at the event. Pre-registration is encouraged at https://www.mycountyparks.com/County/Lee/Park/Wilson-Lake/Events/19325/Hike-and-Seek.aspx, but walk-ins are welcome too. Hinterland Dairy will be donating a portion of the proceeds to Three Rivers Conservation Foundation’s “Places to Play” playground fundraiser. Participants should dress for the weather and wear shoes suitable for walking on unpaved trails.
Lee County Conservation manages 29 individual parks, wildlife areas, historic sites and water recreation access points – encompassing some 2634 acres across the county. The mission of the Lee County Conservation Board is to promote conservation of local natural resources and to provide parks and conservation areas, outdoor recreational opportunities, and environmental education for the public.
Hinterland Dairy sits on over 400 acres of rolling, grassy pastures, row-crop fields and hay fields. Their focus is on raising healthy cows, caring for the land, and producing high-quality, 100% natural milk. They also produce their own cheese and ice cream right on the farm, which is sold in their own shop along with other locally produced goods.
