PAISLEY – The Lake County Parks & Trails Division is inviting residents to participate in a wildlife hike on Saturday, March 3 from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Ellis Acres Reserve, located at 25302 County Road 42 in Paisley.
With guidance from Park Rangers, participants will have an opportunity to explore segments of the over 400-acre reserve and view some of the reserve’s wildlife, which includes black bears, deer and turkeys. The hike will consist of walking less than 2 miles along unpaved and possible uneven trails.
