Each winter, white-tailed deer shed their antlers and to grow new ones in the spring. Join the search for the dropped antlers and learn about this amazing cycle. Families will be guided through the trails and wooded areas of Bloomer Park by city naturalists, Lance and Lauren and be able to take any antlers they find home with them.

“Antler Amble is a great family activity for all ages. It’s a challenging ‘treasure’ hunt that has a fun competitive edge but a relaxing, outdoor calm to it as well,” states Outdoor Interpreter Lauren Oxlade. “This time of year, the birds are singing, the Skunk Cabbage is sprouting, and there’s lots of wildlife activity to enjoy in the woods, even if we don’t find any antlers.”
