Evidence & Investigation

Day Use is permitted. Outhouse facilities are open where feasible - be prepared with your own hand sanitizer and toilet paper. Campgrounds open, starting June 1 at 50% capacity. Second RV units will not be permitted on campsites. We are monitoring our actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and will adjust as needed.

The forest has been overrun with crime!  Students stretch their investigative skills and learn about protecting parks during a classic game of whodunit.  They collect evidence, interview witnesses and learn how forest components contribute to a healthy ecosystem.  Using teamwork and critical thinking, each group studies its own crime scene then reports back to the group.
