Hikers are welcome to bring along their “best friends” for a May 3 guided hike on trails at McCloud Nature Park.
Participants should meet the park naturalists at 2 p.m. at the Nature Center and pick up their recycled plastic doggie bag prior to the hike and a discussion of the canines’ wild cousins.
All dogs must be kept on a leash and participants should bring water for themselves and their pets.
The free program is open to all ages and should last about an hour.
McCloud Nature Park, five minutes south of North Salem at 8518 N. Hughes Road, is operated by Hendricks County Parks and Recreation.
Admission is always free and the park is open from dawn to dusk daily. For more information, call the Hendricks County Parks & Recreation main office at 718.6188 or visit the website at www.hendrickscountyparks.org.
