Spring is Here: Nature Scavenger Hunt

21 03 2011

It’s hard not to love spring in Austin. The warming weather brings flowers, birds, butterflies, and bats back to the city. Here at the Museum, spring means Spring Break Camp which just wrapped up last week. The 4 to 6 year old kids in Half Day Camp spent the week learning about animals in Crazy for Critters camp. They got to visit with some reptiles, make marsupial pouches, learn about amphibians, and much more. We were inspired by the beautiful weather and all the animal action and put together a Nature Scavenger Hunt.

Print out as many copies as you need (one per person or small group) and set out on a nature exploration. Place a check mark next to the items you spot or bring along small stickers to mark off each thing you see. Can you find a grackle, a squirrel, and a compound leaf?

Did you spot any other interesting animals, plants, or natural items on your scavenger hunt? Let us know what you found by leaving us a message in the comment section.
