PORTAGE CREEK BICENTENNIAL PARK SEA SERPENT EGG HUNT
SATURDAY, AUGUST 15
Ranger Joe found more serpent eggs and another object, which could be a horn or a fin, along the walking paths at Portage Creek Bicentennial Park. Research shows that sea serpents only lay eggs along the sides of the two wooded walking paths in this area, not in the forest due to predators. Could these eggs possibly be from the fabled Ramona Sea Serpent of 1901?
Due to the limited number of eggs the serpent can lay in one season, please only one per person. If you find an egg, please call Portage Parks and Recreation at 329-4522 to get a Certificate of Authenticity. This is the last expedition of the season.
Sea Serpent Drawing Contest
Based on the four clues found, Rangers Steve and Roger asks that you create your own color picture of what the Ramona Sea Serpent would look like on an 8-1/2” x 11” piece of paper. You may submit your drawings online by clicking the links below or you can drop off or mail your drawings to Portage Parks and Recreation (7900 South Westnedge Avenue, Portage MI 49002) including your name, email and phone number on the back by Friday, August 28, 2020.
We will post your drawing on this web page for public to vote for the favorite depiction of the serpent. The winning picture will be printed in the Portager Newsletter and exhibited at Ramona Beach with a plaque about the history of the Ramona Sea Serpent.
