Hello Pack 70/72 Parents and Hikers,
Please review the following updates and schedule for the upcoming Pack Nature Hike at Discovery Park.
We have an exciting event planned but it will require a little extra preparation and planning to make sure everyone has a good/safe time (and make it back before darkJ).
Please plan to arrive on-time (before 6:00pm). We want to have enough time to cover some important topics, have an fun/leisurely hike (Tigers included) – and get back before dark.
We are meeting in the North Parking Lot – NOT at the main Environmental Learning Center (see attached Trail Map)
What to Wear: The evenings are getting cooler L Wear your Pack t-shirts and bring appropriate coats/clothing for weather (rain or shine), hat, sturdy shoes (avoid open toes).
What to Bring: Water(!), light trail snacks, first aid kit, compass, flashlight, walking stick, whistle, pedometer, fun trail songs (think 10 essentials) + bug spray
- Also, we will have some time for play on the beach, so you may consider bringing a change of clothes.

Thanks! We’ll look forward to seeing you at this fun, summertime Queen Anne Cub Scout outing!
