Join Get Kids Outside on Friday, July 11 at 7:30 p.m. for a magical Fireflyhike at Indian Lake County Park, 8183 Hwy 19, Cross Plains, WI.
We’ll take an easy one-mile hike around the lake and then, as the sun sets, we’ll start to see hundreds of fireflies. Why do they blink? What makes them glow? We may even catch a few. If there’s interest, we’ll build a fire and cook some marshmallows. Firefly Information
Time: 7:30 pm – 9:30 p.m. Meet in the parking lot at Indian Lake at 7:30 p.m. If you arrive late, go the ‘warming shelter’ by the sledding hill.
Cost: $10/family suggested donation or donate what you can. We will pass the hat to cover leader expenses.
Location: Indian Lake County Park, 8183 Hwy 19, Cross Plains WI 53528. Take Hwy 12 west to Hwy 19 west toward Mazomanie. The entrance to the park is off of 19 about 3 miles from hwy 12.
Bring water, bug dope, a flashlight and a clear container for catching bugs-check the recycling bin for glass jars. I will have bug dope for those who don’t have it and a few containers.
Dogs: Well-behaved dogs okay on a leash are okay.
Transportation: On your own. Meet at the park.
Waiver: Adults/Parents will be asked to sign a waiver when we get to the park. All children must be accompanied by a parent/adult.
RSVP so that I know that you’re coming 24 hours in advance. Cell phone coverage is spotty at Indian Lake so I will not be able to get messages at the park.
Cancellation Policy: In case of bad weather, I will send out an email to those who said yes to the hike by 6 pm. I will also post on my Facebook page.
Hope to see you there.
