Shed Hunt at Stephan's Farm

Sunday, March 24. 2013

9:00 AM - 12 Noon

Each year, male white tailed deer shed their antlers, which you can find as you walk in the countryside. The Upton Open Space Committee are co-hosting a Shed Hunt at the former Stephan's Farm in Upton. We will divide into small groups that will go for an off-trail treasure hunt looking for deer antlers.

There is rough footing in places and it can be wet,.so wear appropriate shoes. Protective clothing and eye wear are also recommended (brambles, branches and shrubs can hurt).

This program is open to all ages and skill levels. Children are welcome with supervision. Liability waiver required. A parent must sign for anyone under 18. Meet in the parking area at the Community Garden on Mechanic Street, Upton (near the power lines). As a courtesy to hikers who may be fearful or allergic, please leave pets at home. There is no charge. Inclement weather cancels. Please send email to for notification about cancellation or other news.
