Fall Colors on display at Sica Hollow State Park
SICA HOLLOW STATE PARK, S.D. – The maples, lindens, ash, elm and oak trees all exhibit a different fall color, and they blend together in a final display of color during the “Secrets of Sica: A Colorful Unveiling” Walk in the Park on Sept. 20.
“Join us as we wander along the Trail of the Spirits amongst the falling leaves, find the final flowers of the year, and examine how the outdoors prepare for the coming winter,” encourages Dave Daberkow, park supervisor.
At 10 a.m., the guided nature walk will take visitors along the Trail of the Spirits, a designated National Recreation Trail, and through the Sica Hollow woodland. Along the way, visitors will identify native plants and wildlife, discover American Indian legends and learn about the natural forces that created the hollow, all while immersed in the hollow’s famous fall foliage.
The Walk in the Park program is a series of educational, guided hikes held throughout the year in South Dakota state parks, recreation areas and nature preserves. Parks staff and volunteers lead the programs, which are co-sponsored by the S.D. Department of Health.
Sica Hollow is located 15 miles northwest of Sisseton of SD 10. For more information on the South Dakota state parks or the Walk in the Park program please visit www.SDparks.info or call (605) 773-3391.
