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!
Our fourth challenge is now up and ready for you!
This challenge is all about spider webs and spiders. We fell in love with spiders while putting this challenge together, and wanted to share a few extra resources that might be fun before or after you do this Nature Quest challenge:
- A neat video from Smithsonian about how spiders make their webs.
- A kid-friendly guide to spiders
- The Chicago Field Museum’s guide to spiders of the Midwest – it has super neat pictures and lots of info about spiders.
- A guide to different types of spider webs from Bay Nature.
And of course, check out what your local library has to offer! Click here for books that we recommend to fuel your Nature Quest fun.
Okay, on to the Nature Quest!
Or you can save this photo to your phone and take it outside with you!
