Numbered wooden squares are attached to the species of tree from the Tree ID sheet found at the kiosk. Walk along the Hatch Run Loop and match up the number with the Tree ID sheet to learn some facts about that species.
You can find QR codes on orange paper attached to trees along the Hemlock Ridge, Hatch Run Loop, and Gardner Road. Scan the codes with the camera of your cell phone. When you scan the QR codes it will take you to a website that will show you photos of the bird, recordings of the bird call, and other cool information.
Put your detective skills to the test on the Hatch Run Loop Trail and "track" down different animals along the way! Grab a brochure at the kiosk in the HRCDA parking lot or at the Conservation District Office to begin your search. Watch for tracks along the trail and use your skills and the brochure to figure out which animals tracks you have found.
