Description

First graders from a nearby DC school devised a fun discovery hunt for visiting kids. Pick up the free treasure hunt kit from the Nature Center front desk and then head out to the adjacent Woodland Trail to begin the quest. Kids use clues and look for objects while painlessly learning a bit about nature. The Woodland Trail is an easy 1/2 mile loop and the nearby parking and bathrooms make this a stress-free excursion.

Short Hike: Starts and ends at the Nature Center.

Family Friendly: Kids 5+ will enjoy looking for clues and completing this free scavenger hunt. Easy walking on this short, mostly flat path make it fun for all fitness levels.
