Point Defiance Naturalist Scavenger Hunt
Rhododendron Garden Shelter
We invite folks of all ages and knowledge levels to join us for our first Naturalist Scavenger Hunt at Pt. Defiance Park. This will be a fun, family – friendly event co-led by the Mountaineers and the Slater Natural History Museum staff from PLU. The scavenger hunt is designed to get you looking for some of our native flora and fauna, based on a list, and then snapping photos with your phone or camera to bring back as “evidence”. We will have field guides available to use, as well as some knowledgeable facilitators. We will break into small groups to do the hunting, and then will re-group and get a chance to share what we have found. Please wear comfortable shoes or sneakers, bring a fleece or light jacket, and your water bottle along with any snacks you might want. We will be on trails but you may need to step off the trail a bit to find what you are looking for. Meet at the Rhododendron Garden shelter at 9 am. Parking is at the “Rustic Picnic Area” just BEFORE you get to the garden, so park first and then walk the 200feet or so to the Garden. We will wrap up about 1100 am.
