UW-La Crosse class offering interactive programs for area kids

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — A UW-La Crosse recreation management class will offer three programs for area children. All three events will be free.

The first event is a ‘Family Fun Scavenger Hunt,’ in Onalaska. Families will have the opportunity to discover parks in Onalaska by participating in the scavenger hunt. The event will run at 10 different parks, and participating families will find clues on the parks and recreation Facebook page, and are encouraged to take pictures with the given object. UWL students will partner with the Onalaska Parks and Recreation Department to host a scavenger hunt from Nov. 12-15.

The second event will be a Turkey Scramble. The La Crosse Parks and Recreation Department and UWL students will host a socially distanced scavenger hunt, a take-home craft and prizes from local sponsors. The event will be Saturday, Nov. 14, from 2-4 PM in Myrick Park.

The last event will be Children’s Museum Winter Fun. The event will include crafts, games and community engagement to celebrate the beginning of winter. The program will be hosted virtually on Zoom, but families can pick up an interactive activity box the week prior to the event. The event will take place Saturday Dec. 5, at 3 PM.

All events need prior registration. To register, visit; www.uwlax.edu/news/posts/family-fun.
