Donation of Bear Mounts for Catoctin Creek Nature Center
Parks and Recreation staff want to thank the Department of Natural Resource staff for their donation of some new animal mounts for the Catoctin Creek Nature Center. Ms. Clarissa Harris and Ben Smith from DNR met with Frederick County Parks and Recreation staff last week in Washington County to view multiple mounts that are currently on display at the Sideling Hill Mountain rest stop. Several of these exhibits, including a bear and cub mount, will be donated to the new nature center this spring and be on display for everyone in Frederick to enjoy as they visit and enjoy nature this fall. Other mounts include a coyote, and a turkey.
