  On Sunday, Dec. 3, two groups took advantage of activities at Oracle State Park. About a dozen people attended the holiday wreath making workshop taught by Park Ranger Jennifer Rinio. The wreath making has become popular the last couple of years. The participants went out on the trails and gathered their own plant material, including soapberry, mistletoe, buckwheat, manzanita, juniper and more. They put the materials together and created their own holiday wreaths to take home.

  A few members of the SaddleBrooke Hiking Club were at the park to hike some of the trails. The SaddleBrooke Hiking Club currently has 728 members. The club members keeps very active with daily hikes, programs, events and hiking trips to locations like the Grand Canyon and Big Bear National Park.   

  The Oracle State Park is open seven days a week for hiking, picnicking or touring the historic Kannally House.
