Geocache Description:

Continue your hike on the Barrens Nature Trail through this wooded area.  Pause to listen to the sounds of the forest, take a deep breath and appreciate the smells of nature, and look around at the beauty that Ranger Rick's friends enjoy everyday.  This friend of Ranger Rick enjoys hopping through the woods and lives in underground burrows.  They graze on grass, forbs, and leafy weeds.  They keep their eyes open and their big ears alert for animals that prey on them that may be nearby such as coyotes, fox, raccoons, owls, hawks and eagles.  When you find the cache read the clues for this friend and stamp her footprint on your passport.  Passports are available at the office or some extras have been placed inside each cache.

This cache is located in an area designated as a State Natural Area with special permission from Thomas Meyer, Conservation Biologist with the State Natural Areas Program of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and Heather Wolf, property manager at Buckhorn State park.  Please stay on the designated trails, all caches are located within 20 feet of the trail.   Geocaches placed on Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource managed lands require permission by means of a notification form.
