Walk on the Wild Side

NWF Nature Hike and Scavenger Hunt

National Wildlife Federation (NWF), America's largest conservation organization, is pleased to announce the fourth annual Hike & Seek event at Druid Hills Park on October 26 in Baltimore, Maryland.  Hike & Seek is a family outing that inspires a child’s sense of adventure by combining a nature hike and scavenger hunt. The event brings families together for a few hours in the great outdoors for some fresh fall air and fun and provides an opportunity to rediscover nature.  

Hike & Seek is being held on Saturday, October 26, 2013, starting at 12:00 Noon at Druid Hills Park in Baltimore, Maryland.

People are encouraged to sign up at www.hikeandseek.org early to buy tickets and then show up ready to spend some family time in nature. The one to two mile go-at-your-own-pace hike will have interactive “Stop & Study” nature stations with engaging learning activities including fun nature crafts, live wildlife displays, and much more.  This year’s events will include a "Jake and the Never Land Pirates" themed station highlighting a lesson about trees.  Every child participant is given a Map & Mission Guidebook to direct their path and will receive an Honorary Junior Naturalist badge from Ranger Rick at the end of the hike. Hike & Seek is made possible by support from Disney, REI, Mattel, and National Recreation and Park Association.
