Parks Collaborate for 4 Hikes, 4 Parks, 1 Adventure
PIERRE, S.D. -- Three South Dakota state parks and one Iowa state park are presenting code words, clues and nature on May 2, in "4 Hikes, 4 Parks, 1 Adventure."
Newton Hills State Park near Canton, Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve near North Sioux City, Union Grove State Park near Beresford and Oak Grove State Park near Hawarden, Iowa, are joining forces for the event.
Participants will hike a trail at each park searching for a code word. The event starts at 8 a.m., and the prize drawings begin at 5 p.m. at Adamâ€™s Homestead and Nature Preserve's Welcome Center. Participants can begin at any time after 8 a.m., provided they are finished by 5 p.m.
Participants are responsible for their own travel between parks. A person is entered into the drawing by finding and recording all code words. Participants must be present to win.
Pre-registration is preferred by contacting either the Newton Hills park office at 605-987-2263 or Oak Grove Park at 712-552-1047.
