An 18th century weekend is planned Jan. 18-20 at Twin Falls Resort State Park.

"Tracking and Wood Lore weekend creates the experience of how our ancestors tracked the animals that provided food and clothing," said Bryan Danford, park naturalist.

Participants will engage on track walks and put new skills into use with the scavenger hunt. Other topics of the weekend will include Indian stories, edible and medicinal plants presentation and an 18th century trading camp.

Trails Inc. instructors and guides for the weekend are Doug Wood, Dianne Anestis, Mike Little, Sue Little and Tiffany Little. Activities will begin on Friday night with an introduction to the weekend activities, games and a night hike. Saturday features an 18th century-style dinner.

Overnight accommodations are available for Twin Falls Lodge or cabins. Advance reservations are required.

For information call 304-294-4000 or email twinfallssp@wv.gov.

Twin Falls State Park is located in Wyoming County between Mullens and Pineville. The park features a 47-room lodge, vacation cabins, campground, restaurant and Pioneer Farm, in addition to hiking, biking, golf and nature-based activities.
