What We Do

Nature Scavenger Hunts

Learning to look at nature more closely or differently can teach a person many things. Try using one of these scavenger hunts to enhance your walk in the woods. They can be used as a teaching aid or developed into a learning worksheet for the classroom. Or, just plain used for fun.
