The Town Green at Russell Crossroads

Take a tour on the Turpentine Trail to learn about the animals in Russell Forest! Turpentine Tales: A Walk Through the Forest will run from 6pm to 8pm, October 28 through 30, at Russell Crossroads. Local student actors will don the costumes of forest animals to present the audience with glimpses of their lives in the Russell Forest.

“Among the animals on the tour will be a hawk, a ring-necked snake, a vulture, a deer, and others,” said Karen Kison, Wellness and Recreation Director at Willow Point Country Club, who is directing the outdoor production.

“Tour groups will meet in the stage area on the Town Green where Naturalist Marianne Hudson will have a presentation with live forest critters, then a guide will direct groups along the trail to meet the animals,” Kison explained. “Each actor will explain a little about how that animal lives in the forest.”

The program is designed to entertain children, especially those in early to mid-elementary grades, but younger children, older children and adults would find the tour interesting as well, Kison said.

There is no charge for Turpentine Tales; reservations are advised, but walkups will be welcomed. To make your reservation, email Kison at [email protected]. Please meet at the Town Green stage 15 minutes prior to tour time.

Turpentine Tales a great way to get to know the animals in the forest!
