The Mill Creek MetroParks celebrate Thanksgiving with a Turkey Scavenger Hunt Nov. 24 and 25.

Twenty turkeys with fun facts were hidden around the Ford Nature Center for children and their families to come find and explore.

Tiffany Tudor and Juliette Steinbeck were present at the event.

Tudor said she was interested in the event because she learned that the park had turkeys.

“I always just thought of Thanksgiving as eating turkeys, but learning about wild turkeys has been really cool,” Tudor said.

Naturalist Marilyn Williams organized the event, though it was a self guided walk through the building.

Facts listed about the turkeys included that turkeys can fly up to 55 miles per hour and that the gobble can be heard for more than a mile away.
