Bremer Sanctuary Snowflake Search 

Bundle up for a new and exciting family-friendly winter activity at the H & B Bremer Wildlife Sanctuary in Hillsboro. We’ve hidden 12 painted snowflakes with an accompanying Bremer fun fact sign throughout the sanctuary. In random order, all snowflakes and facts are located along the established trails for hikers to find. Trail maps are located in the rural mailbox in front of the barn. We will start you off with a hint, no snowflakes are located on the West Creek Trail (as it is not listed on our trail map yet) or the extended loop of the Bluebird Trail. All other trails are fair game!! Can you find them all?

Submit your entry via our Facebook page, website “contact us” link, or by paper entry form located inside our Little Free Library in front of the Bremer barn. Your entry should include the number of the fun fact signs, the title on the signs and background color of each snowflake disc, and your contact information. The last day to submit your entry is February 15th. One winner will be drawn amongst all the entries to win a “Fun Evening at Bremer” which includes a trail hike, wagon ride, and s’more roasting for you and 15 friends or family members.

Bremer Sanctuary, an Illinois Audubon Society property, is located one-half mile north of the Montgomery County courthouse, 194 Bremer Lane, Hillsboro, IL. Follow the signs to the parking area at the barn. Bremer’s chapter, Hickory Hills, is an all-volunteer organization maintained by a small group of dedicated stewards. The grounds are open to the public from dawn to dusk for non-vehicular traffic on the marked trails. Like us on Facebook: Bremer Sanctuary, Hickory Hills Chapter of the Illinois Audubon Society or check out our webpage at www.bremersanctuary.org
