‘Summer Letterbox Adventure’ back for fifth year
“Summer Letterbox Adventure”, Preservation Parks of Delaware County’s award-winning family program, returns June 9 for a fifth season. Children who register for the program will take booklets into the parks to follow nature clues and find camouflaged boxes hidden in six of the Preservation Parks preserves.
Participants will have until August 12 to conduct their searches, on their own time. Children who complete the project will be entered in a drawing for prizes donated by area businesses.
