Nature Center:

Fun nature trail summer 2021 with video clues. Starts to the right of the playground. We went after a trip to the Air and Space Museum. More on instagram:

On our way home from the Air and Space Museum, we stopped for an hour at Cub Run Rec Center 4 miles south. They have a new Critter Trivia Trail that was really fun! ⁣

You start at the trail before the playground and use the QR code to watch a 1 minute intro video. Then there are 11 video clues which each ask a question about a different animal and then you have to look for the answer card too. (Swipe to see one in trunk!) Love these free, fun activities! ⁣

One note: please check for ticks after being outside! We had an encounter last fall and my daughter’s nature class teacher found one this week so they are starting to come out. ⁣
