We’re very excited to hold the event at Bristol Woods. The 200-acre park is the most natural park in Kenosha County and is home to the Pringle Nature Center. Bristol Woods Park has  4.28 miles of hiking trails so you can pick the distance you want to hike. Come out for an enjoyable morning hiking through the woods for a great cause – raising money to spay/neuter more cats! There will be raffles, merchandise, a bake sale, fun photo ops and, as always – CAT BINGO in the shelter.
