Colder temperatures aren’t everyone’s favorite time of year to explore outdoors, but winter can be a magical season! The leaves have fallen and some animals are hibernating, but there are still wondrous sights, sounds and smells in nature.
Take the kids, prepare your senses and head to the park, hit a new trail or inspect your yard to start searching for these fun winter scavenger hunt finds! You don’t need snow to find them all (but who doesn’t love snow?). Tag Great Parks in your photos and we may share them on our social media pages.
Great Parks reminds all park guests to be kind outside: Maintain physical distancing of 6 feet from other park guests, stay home if you feel sick and be sure to take all of your trash and recycling with you when leaving.
