Find Me FeLeap

Introducing “Find Me FeLeap”, another fun scavenger hunt opportunity for you to explore Stark Parks. 

Ben Weaver, a Jackson High School student and Life Scout with Troop 927-Lake Cable, has designed and placed 12 hidden FeLeap signs across Stark Parks.  These signs are tucked away along trails, near wildlife observation areas, and of course next to water.  Enjoy a family photo or selfie with the popular smiling frog and share with #findmeFeLeap
