Nov 17 – Dec 1 – Nature Quest Challenge 5: Animal Evidence (Scat, Tracks, etc!)

Date: November 17, 2020 - December 1, 2020
Time: All-day

Our fifth challenge is now up and ready for you – and it’s all about scat, tracks, and the other evidence we can find about wildlife…if we know how to look! 

Nature Quest is a fun, free event happening throughout Fall 2020. Families can do Nature Quest together, but still social distance from others. Every other week, we’ll release a new “challenge” with themes like Monarch Migration, Spider Webs, and more. The challenges ask you to look for animal tracks, draw insect wings, listen for birds, and pay attention to nature. Families can print off the one-page Nature Quest challenge, and head to a nature preserve or park to complete the prompts. We’ll post new Nature Quest challenges throughout the Fall! Major thank you to the Rising Sun Regional Foundation for making this program possible – and all of our partners, from the Madison Library to the Muscatatuck Wildlife Society.
