Looking for a way to get the whole family involved in the outdoors, spiced with a hint of friendly competition to make things more interesting?  Look no further, because we’ve got the perfect activity!

Come enjoy an outdoor hunt for nature-related items around the Cape Girardeau Nature Center grounds and trails.  Each family will be given a list of plants and animals to find and then capture in photos.  There will be a prize for the family that finds everything on the list!  We’ll meet at the nature center at 2 pm to distribute scavenger lists and assigned areas and then send your family on their way to hunt the items down and take the photos.

Everyone will return to the nature center auditorium at a designated time to then share their photos on the big screen and see who captured the most items on the list.  Be sure to bring a camera card or a USB cord to transfer your photos to our computer for the final viewing, and be creative as your family is sure to be excited to see themselves on the big screen when we gather at the end!

Ages 5 and up with an adult mentor.  Call 573-290-5218 to register or for more information.  We hope to see you Discovering Nature on the big screen!
