Types of Nature Scavenger Hunts

Nature scavenger hunts are for all ages! Parents can create them for their kids and enjoy watching them get excited about nature. They’re also the perfect date idea for couples and a great way to get to know a new place for those frequent travelers. Here are a few ideas for your next nature scavenger hunt!

Colors in nature

Nature is vibrant! If you take the time to look around, there are so many shapes, sizes, and…colors! Take the time on your nature scavenger hunt to see how many colors you can find in nature. Red, yellow, green, white, purple, pink, make a note of every color you can find while taking a hike or exploring Gold Country Campground Resort.

Local plants and animals

Get some knowledge about the different plants and animals around the area and then go find them! Are there certain trees that grow in the area or animals that like to wander around? What about flowers, grasses, rocks, birds, or mammals? The possibilities are endless, and you’ll learn so much along the way!

Nature Scrapbook

Turn your nature scavenger hunt into a collection of memories. First, make a list of things to find in nature. This can be rocks, leaves, feathers, birds, plants, flowers, you name it! Then each person will take a picture of their favorite ones. Put all your pictures together and create a scrapbook of everyone’s favorite finds!

Leave No Trace

This is a great way to give back to nature! A Leave No Trace scavenger hunt is great for a hike or just walking around outside. All you have to do is if you see some trash that doesn’t belong, pack it out with you! All while leaving no trace of your own. It’s a great way to connect with nature while helping keep our lands clean!
