Gathering Place is home to a huge variety of wildlife because the park is a wonderful habitat with plenty of resources. With our Backyard Family Nature Walk Guide, you can become a cartographer for animals and create a treasure map for wildlife living near your home! The treasure map you create will indicate where wildlife can find their way to food, shelter and safety. This fun, family activity will spark your observational and critical thinking skills, as well as help you develop an eye for detail.
This activity is great for families to work on together, or for children 6 and up to try independently.
