Animal Adaptations

Join a Ranger for a short hike and a program on animals in and around Hanging Rock State Park. We'll discuss the adaptations that help them survive and thrive in the wild. Pictures and animal skins and skulls will be used during the program. Meet in front of the Visitor Center and we'll hike toward Upper Cascades. In case of inclement weather, program will take place in the Visitor Center auditorium.
