The “I Spy” Walk
You won’t want to miss out on our “I Spy” walk from Lake of the Woods to the Library. All ages are welcome!
FIVE STOPS with special displays!
Kids who collect stickers from the red buckets at all 5 stops will get a free book at the end. Grownups will get a free coupon for the Keurig station.
An I Spy hunt all along the route, with plenty of items, some big and some small, to find! This year’s walk will feature fairies, cats, and hearts, plus many unique items. They will give you a scoresheet to keep track of what you find.
You will step off at the playground near the bell tower at Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve and then follow the bike path to the Library. At the end of the trail, you’ll find the rest of the summer party fun!
They encourage people to park at the Library and take the provided shuttle to the starting line.
It’s a 2-mile route following the bike path the entire way, and stroller friendly!
All hidden items will be located close to the trail in grassy areas. You will not need to venture into the woods or nearby yards.
The bike path runs close to Lake of the Woods Road for a while. Please make sure you have enough adults in your party to supervise young children for these stretches along the road. The route also crosses a few intersections.
They are offering free shuttle service 9am-1:30pm from the library to the start of the walk.
This fundraising event supports your community through the Rotary Club of Mahomet and the Friends of the Mahomet Public Library.
