Earth Day is tomorrow… what are you doing to celebrate? If you are looking for an outdoor adventure, why not check out this amazing family scavenger hunt!
#exploremore Family Scavenger Hunt
We are excited to announce our partnership, together with The Nature Conservancy and Albany Pine Bush Preserve, to support Bethlehem Children’s School’s new event series: #exploremore Family Scavenger Hunt. BCS announced the launch of the event series at Albany Pine Bush Discovery Center on Thursday, April 18th. The 8-week real-world scavenger hunt begins on Friday, April 19th—just three days before Earth Day, and will continue through the end of the school year. Spend some family time outdoors with this fun local activity!
Is it a Spring peeper frog? A vernal pond? Deer tracks?
Solve the riddles, find the answer in nature, and you’ll be entered in a drawing to win a prize! Each week a new kid-friendly riddle will be posted to BCS’s social media. Families will work to solve these weekly riddles and then head out to the MHLC preserves and other local preserves to search for the answer! Participants will have until the following Thursday to post a geotagged photograph, with #exploremore and #naturewisdomwellness, to their Instagram or Facebook account to be registered in a weekly drawing for prizes. On June 14th, all participants will be entered into a grand prize drawing to win a free week of Summer Camp at Bethlehem Children’s School. Complete participation rules can be found on the BCS Family Scavenger Hunt web page.
Fostering the next generation of conservationists
The event series is an excellent opportunity for children and their families to take a closer look at nature, experiencing what lies just beyond their own backyards in the acres of conserved space around the Capital Region. MHLC’s 18 preserves offer miles upon miles of trails through rolling fields and forests, alongside winding streams and waterfalls, with native wildlife all around… get out and explore with us!
