Invitation for families to spend more time having fun in the great outdoors with this unique and interactive nature hike and scavenger hunt! National Wildlife Federation (NWF) will work with local and national partners including REI, Piedmont Park Conservancy and Lipsey Mountain Spring Water to introduce children and families to hiking in an easy way on a guided trail.
Hike & Seek is a fundraiser for NWF's Be Out There - a national movement to give back to American children what they don’t even know they’ve lost – their connection to the natural world.
The adventure starts at Base Camp in Piedmont Park where children and families receive their Map & Mission Guide Book including a scavenger hunt list and enjoy activities and a brief introduction about how to look for items on the trail before they embark on the 1.5mile loop hike. Along the trail, we feature five “Stop & Study Stations” where families talk with naturalists or volunteers and learn more about the wonder of the outdoors via interactive games and activities regarding local birds, mammals, plants, trees, amphibians and other wildlife topics. Once back at Base Camp there will be wildlife displays, games and fun activities for kids and parents!
