LESLIE SCIENCE & NATURE CENTER INVITES THE COMMUNITY TO A FUN, ENLIGHTENING SCAVENGER HUNT
ANN ARBOR, MI, JULY 28, 2014 –
Leslie Science & Nature Center (LSNC) invites you to explore the natural world and enjoy the beautiful late summer weather at our LSNC Scavenger Hunt. This event, including a variety of different challenges and opportunities to compete, will engage, educate, and delight the entire family on-site at LSNC, 1831 Traver Rd, Ann Arbor, MI, 48105, on Saturday, August 16 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
This event is for everyone who loves the thrill of hunting for things. Multiple challenges will have participants scouring the entire LSNC grounds–including Black Pond Woods–for insects, colors, textures, plants, and more. Multiple hunts will allow explorers of different ages and abilities to hunt for different objects in different ways, as well as the time to visit with our educational non-releasable birds of prey and to potentially see our resident wildlife on the trails and grounds. We recommend that families attend ready to hike on the trails and grounds, so wearing sturdy shoes, insect repellant, sun screen, and appropriate clothing for the day’s temperatures are a must!
Scavenger Hunts are a great way for people to get out and see areas of our grounds and trails that they might not have been to before as well as learning more about the plants and wildlife that call LSNC home. It’s also a great way to be active and get some exercise!
Scavenger hunts are fun for all ages, so we will have different types available to suit different interests and experience levels. Included is a hunt appropriate for very young kids, a digital picture hunt, a letterboxing hunt, and a geocaching hunt. There will be quite a bit of walking involved if participants are feeling competitive, but guests with little legs will still have fun on a specially designed challenge in a smaller space. Complete more hunts with your family to increase the number of tickets you get to put in the hat for prizes at the end of the program!

Extend your visit and stay for a second program on August 16: Super Snakes! Join LSNC’s Wildlife Curator, David Clipner, as he introduces attendees to snake species from around the world – including their own backyards – and shares LSNC’s extensive collection of live snakes with visitors. Snakes are often misunderstood, and this is a valuable opportunity to learn more, ask questions, and see them up close.
