What Treasures Can You Find?
A Nature Treasure Hunt for Kids of All Ages
Help your kids connect with nature and put smiles on their faces by going on a Nature Treasure Hunt!
An increasing number of studies say that kids who play outside are happier, healthier and smarter. Help your kids connect with nature and put smiles on their faces by going on a Nature Treasure Hunt!
Do this easy treasure hunt in your own backyard, in a nearby park or at a Nature Conservancy preserve near you…wherever you like to be in the great outdoors! This Nature Treasure Hunt offers two hunts: one for ages 4-7 and another for ages 8-10.
It's also kid-tested and produced with help from David Sobel, author of Wild Play: Parenting Adventures in the Great Outdoors and Susie Spikol, teacher-naturalist at the Harris Center for Conservation Education.
