People are encouraged to sign up at www.hikeandseek.org early to register and then show up ready to spend fun family time in nature. The one to two mile go-at-your-own-pace nature walk will have interactive “Stop & Study” nature stations with engaging learning activities including nature crafts, live wildlife encounters, and much more. 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.

Now in its 5th year, Hike & Seek is a part of National Wildlife Federation’s 10 Million Kids Outdoors Campaign. This three-year initiative seeks a future in which all children spend time outside each day, creating a generation of happier and healthier children with more awareness and connection to the natural world. National Wildlife Federation has worked to connect children and youth with nature for decades, inspiring children through Ranger Rick magazine, working with educators to get kids learning outdoors, and helping parents find new ways to engage their children outside.

The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) is America’s largest conservation organization, inspiring Americans to protect wildlife for our children’s future. NWF programs educate and inspire people to protect wildlife and wildlife habitat. For more information: www.NWF.org.
