LARPD Ranger Sycamore Simon

Sycamore Simon is our honorary Ground Squirrel Park Ranger at Sycamore Grove!

As one of the Rangers, Simon helps keep the park safe, clean, and fun for all the guests and wildlife.

Simon has also been given the task of protecting the Golden Acorn.

Every month, Simon likes to hide the Golden Acorn in a new location around the park and will leave clues for visitors who enjoy a challenge.

Check back here monthly for a new riddle from Sycamore Simon, and see if you can complete his challenge! 

June Ranger Riddle

Nesting cliff swallows have a bridge 

Ducks run amok 

A large, beautiful pine 

Sticky to touch 

Life’s never a bummer when it’s the beginning of summer
