WCA Hikes Lake County Challenge
Does your family need to get out of the house? Join the WCA Hikes Lake County Challenge! Until November 30th, you can log your hiking miles with Westlake for a chance to win a prize for your family or class. In addition, if you log your miles with the Lake County Forest Preserve’s Hike Lake County challenge, you can win a badge for each family member or even your dog at https://www.lcfpd.org/hlc/. Walking, running, or riding in a stroller count, but not biking.
The classes with the most miles per capita (PS-K, 1st–6th and 7th–12th) win a special treat (PS-K = special snack, other grades = pizza party)! The families with the most miles (PS–6th and 7th–12th) win a special prize. For families with students in multiple grades, the family category will be assigned by the grade of the oldest student.
For this challenge, only Lake County Forest Preserves count, and you can only count each forest preserve once. You can hike Lake County Forest Preserves other than the official list for 2021 to count for the WCA challenge.
Our ninth graders are organizing this activity as a service learning project, under the supervision of Mrs. O’Malley, the secondary science teacher.
Families can log their hikes using the form in the Westlake App, or by returning paper slips to your child’s teacher (or Mrs. O’Malley).
