Why? Because everyone loves a scavenger hunt and what better way is there to get out and explore nature??? It is a wonderful opportunity for families to bond as they discover their wonderful natural world around them.
To join in on the scavenger hunt fun please join the group Nature Scavenger Hunt for Families on Facebook. Every Sunday throughout the summer (9 weeks) I will post the weekly items you need to go out and hunt for.
This is a point based scavenger hunt which will run through Facebook. Every family who joins will receive points for each picture they upload to the group using the hashtag #2014naturehunt. To be awarded your points you must be part of this facebook group and you must describe each photo so I can easily distinguish which item is in your photo. For instance something wet could be a picture of a river, a lake or a mud puddle. I need to know which photo to knock off on your checklist. Every week there will be bonus items to find for extra points as well as overall bonus family activities to complete for extra points. Lets see how many points you can rack up and how much fun you can have as a family discovering the natural world around you.
