Fantastic Wildlife Fridays: Photo Scavenger Hunt @ The Nature Discovery Centre
Aug 31 @ 10:30 am – 4:00 pm

A scavenger hunt with a difference! Using your digital/phone camera, collect shots of all the items on the list to win a prize.

Your challenge: to collect photos capturing all the items off a nature-themed list.  Work as a team to find and photograph everything on the list and you will get a prize, plus more fun activities like den building and bug hunting in our special Butterfly Lake area.  Examples of items that might be on the list: a spiky leaf; a cloud that looks like an animal; a selfie with your favourite tree…

There are two sessions, at 10.30am-12.30pm and 2.00pm-4.00pm. The ‘tickets’ link takes you to a page showing both listings.
