Kettle Moraine State Forest – Upcoming Programs

Please find attached a flier describing our upcoming programs and service opportunities at the Kettle Moraine State Forest – Northern Unit. We are asking for your help in distributing these fliers to the 4-H leaders in Sheboygan County.

The “Evening with Nature Series” brings presenters with their vast knowledge on nature/environmental subjects to the Ice Age Visitor Center every second Thursday of the month. The series runs from September through May. These programs are best for those over 10 years old.

Our Saturday Exploring Nature Programs cover a variety of nature and outdoor skills topics. These programs geared for groups and families with children ages 6 to 12 years old. We encourage groups to call ahead of time so that the naturalist can have plenty of supplies on hand.

The second flier is for our twenty-first annual Halloween Nature Hikes on Friday, October 19, and Saturday, October 20, at the Mauthe Lake Recreation Area (located off County Road GGG south County Road SS near New Prospect) of the Kettle Moraine State Forest – Northern Unit. The event runs from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. This is a non-scary, fun, educational event. Our theme this year is Four on the Floor brought to life with costume characters along a trail through the dark woods. All are welcome to attend!

We are currently looking for volunteers at least 14 years old to help us out with the Halloween Nature Hikes. Volunteers are asked to arrive by 5:45 pm and should be finished no later than 9:45 pm.

We are looking for folks to help with the following activities:

Enthusiastic Game Leaders (at least two volunteers per game)

Located in the Games Tent will be six games for people to play: Turtle Hurdles Challenge, Pin the Tail on the Skunk, Animal Hole Beanbag Toss, Bobbing for Apples, Salamander Ring Toss, and one more to be determined.

Patient Craft Instructors (at least two volunteers per craft)
Located in the Craft Tent will three crafts for people to create.

Cheerful Hike Leaders (at least two volunteers per group)
Hike leaders take groups out on the trail to meet the characters making sure groups do not double up on each other and everyone has a good time.

Charismatic Costume Characters (a total of 12 to 15 people)
These folks bring the whole theme of Four on the Floor to life. We provide the costume and script (about a three-minute presentation). If every time slot is filled, a character will present his/her presentation 21 times to groups from 5 to 30 plus people.

We need volunteers to please sign up by October 4 by providing their names, addresses or emails, and phone numbers. Jackie Scharfenberg, Forest Naturalist, likes to call each volunteer to make sure that he or she has all the particulars for volunteering, About a week before the event, all volunteers receive detailed information for helping out, a map to Mauthe Lake, permission slip (for folks under 18 years old), volunteer agreement (for folks 18 years old and older), and parking pass.

If you would like someone to come to one of your meetings to further explain these upcoming events, please contact Jackie Scharfenberg. We will make arrangements for a naturalist to speak to your group.
