Guidelines for Family Roots:
You will need a Discover State Park Pass. If you don't have one, these are available for $30 at the parking lot kiosk.
Please arrive early to take care of your bathroom needs and be all set to gather with the group promptly at 10am. There is a heated bathroom just on the south side of the parking lot.
Parents/care givers are responsible for the safety of their children and keeping them with the group.
Please stay with the group for the 2 hours. Our pace on the hikes will allow children to discover and explore the forest while also reaching our destinations before the end of our time together.
When we are in circle time, please refrain from side talk and help keep your children focused on the activity. We will have plenty of time to connect with eachother when we are out of circle.
Sticks are allowed in hand that are shorter than arms length, though hiking sticks are allowed that are shorter than your height. Please no gun play.
We have a large group and would like to make minimal impact on the environment. No general destruction, please.
Please insure that wrappers, garbage, and things we have brought into nature go home with us or into the garbage cans.
Please do not kill or damage live things - trees, plants, insects, mushrooms, etc.
Please leave forest materials, forest treasures, and animals in the forest.
Please leave toys in the car. The forest has a bountiful amount of nature made toys!
Please come dressed for the weather:
Let's have fun! Limit your cellular time, or better yet, leave it in the car, and immerse yourself in our natural world!
