You can find us on

Walking in the woods is enjoyable and many of us are getting outside for both our physical and mental health but it can get boring to walk the same area or trails day after day. To help make each walk at the Trout Lake Nature Center an adventure or to give your walk purpose, we have scattered six stone critters in the woods off our trails. See if you can find these “critters.”

Some of the stone critters are easier to find than others. To find all six critters you need to walk all the trails. Three are differently painted foxes (red, silver and grey with the grey representing the native fox for Florida). Three critters are differently painted raccoon families.

When you find a “critter,” take a snapshot and post to your social media. Can you find all six critters? Periodically they will be moved around our trails so you can return for a nature hunt over and over.
