Family Place Nature Walk: Pack Trail

Wednesday, May 26, 2021
Creston Valley Branch
Thompson Pack Trailhead on Vance Road in Canyon-Lister
Meet at the end of Vance Road- at the lowest trailhead for the Pack Trail. It is just north of 52nd street in Canyon.

We are doing one walk per month in partnership with Creston Family Place.  We are happy to be supporting early years (ages 0-6) programming in the valley. These are short walks to explore the outdoors with your family.

Please register yourself and your child/children in advance for this free program. Space is limited to 10 participants.

COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place for this walk. Adults are required to wear masks at this time.

This walk will take place in the Creston Community Forest from 10:30-11:30am on Wednesday, May 26, 2021. The Pack Trail starts off in a newly treated fire mitigation block and then follows a shady trail up Sullivan creek.  We will walk a short distance along the trail and back, and see if we can spot any song birds or deer! We will meet at the Thompson Pack Trailhead on Vance Road in Canyon-Lister. Bring extra layers, snacks, water and your curiosity.
