FAYETTE TAKO GROUP HOSTING SPRING ANTLER SHED HUNT AND EVENT ON APRIL 28



Interested in looking for and learning about deer antler sheds…..building bird houses and how nature works? On Saturday, April 28, the Fayette Take A Kid Outdoors (TAKO) is sponsoring a special outdoor event at the Houge Pond, east of West Union from 10am-1pm. This free and family-oriented youth event will feature fun and educational activities at this popular nature area.



Highlighting the day will be our annual antler shed hunt with the kids being able to keep these as a souvenir of the day. Also Chris Jones, Fayette Game Warden will share his role and ideas about protecting nature. Other activities will include building bird houses to hang in area trees in time for the spring nesting season. Those interested in archery can also learn/practice this skill. A noon light lunch is provided. Please dress for outdoor conditions as this time of year can vary. Driving directions: from east end of West Union on Hwy 18, turn east on Golden Rd (B64) for a mile and then turn south Hazel Rd for about two miles. TAKO signs will be posted also.
