Ready, Set, TYPE Scavenger Hunt

Ernest Hemingway, one of the writers discussed in Tobias Wollf’s 2003 novel Old School, not only wrote tales of love, war, wilderness and loss, but was also an accomplished big game hunter who travelled to far off lands on safari. Hemingway’s exploits became the basis for many of his later tales. As part of The National Endowment for the Arts 2015 The Big Read, Stark Parks and the Massillon Museum invite you to explore Stark County on a scavenger hunt to discover Stark County’s own local big game hunter. Look for typewriter keys at your Stark Parks and the Canalway Center at the Exploration Gateway in Sippo Lake Park to learn the identify of a local conservationist and hunter. Participants who uncover the typewriter key clues and unravel the mystery person’s name can visit the Massillon Museum to be entered into a raffle for a special reward. Keys to the mystery can be found at kiosks in the following locations: Ohio & Erie Canal - Lock 4 Trailhead Walborn Reservoir Marina Sippo Lake Park – Exploration Gateway Trailhead or Congressman Ralph Regula Canalway Center Middle Branch Trail – Schneider Park Trailhead Mahoning Valley Trail – Deer Creek Trailhead
