The Champaign County Forest Preserve District has placed 40 painted snowflakes throughout their preserves. I feel like this could be the basis for a little friendly competition amongst friends. Create teams. Set parameters and a deadline for finding them all. Put a prize on the line: Bragging rights? A trophy? Some local brews? A gift card for a local restaurant? The possibilities are endless. It also gets you out of the house, moving, and perhaps discovering a new trail or a new preserve. Many of us are more familiar with Homer Lake and Lake of the Woods, but have you been to the others? Heron View, near Mahomet, was just added last year.
The snowflakes will be out and ready for finding beginning January 20th and will remain through the end of February.
