I found this really cool natrue walk treasure hunt list on Facebook the other day. If you search for The Crosby Arboretum on Facebook you can find the worksheet there.
I emailed it to myself and today took my son to one of our small nature trails to see how many things we could find.
We headed out to our local walking trail close to the house. We love this little trail. At only a mile long it takes you along the bayou and into the pine savanna.
So with our paper in hand we started off.
Now I have found that the best way to get my kid to look at everything around us is to give him a list of what to find. This made this activity perfect for him.
This trail is a nice mix of shade and sun. With a gravel path mixed with dirt path the trail is easy for any level of hiker.
This hike was less about the treasure hunt and more about getting out and enjoying nature right here by the house. The trail was not crowded at all and the day was perfect for an adventure.
So y’all get out there and find your adventure for the day.
