JURASSIC FISH PARK SCAVENGER HUNT                                                                                                       

Jurassic Jerry accidentally left the barn door open, and his secret lair of dinosaurs escaped to the woods! We need your help to find them all so they can be safely returned to their cages! There are 30 dinosaurs and 11 different types in all for this scavenger hunt located along the trails at Fish Park. For your convenience, we have numbered them all, so you don’t duplicate if you end up on the same trail twice. Poulsbo’s Fish Park, 288 NW Lindvig Way, Poulsbo.
