Meadowbrook Clue
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 15 minutes

Park in the Race Street parking lot near the organic gardens. The farm buildings are part of the old McCullough farmstead. The corn crib is in the midst of the sensory garden and sports metallic 6- and 8-legged creatures chasing each other around its walls. After exploring the sensory garden, return to the side of the corn crib closest to the parking lot and stand on the concrete near the bench. Face the wall and look at the bug up on the left side of the wall. Let your gaze travel down along the wall, then onto the ground slightly to your left. You’ll find what you seek hiding in a cozy spot in a hollow log next to the curved rock.
