Pollination Scavenger Hunt

June 23rd - July 21st, 2021

In collaboration with the Cumberland Community Forest Society, DV8 Education is offering the community yet another engaging scavenger hunt. The focus of this scavenger hunt is pollination . Also included is a challenge to match the flower with the correct pollinator. Download the Flower File and as you visit each box (2-7), you will find a pollinator profile description. Based on the information learned in the profile and the box contents, determine which flower belongs to the described pollinator.

 

The intention behind these scavenger hunts is to provide families with fun and meaningful outdoor activities that serve to deepen one's idea of place. As we learn more about our forest and community, we hope to foster a great love for our ecological paradise and the importance of engaging actively as stewards.

The scavenger hunt is appropriate for all ages. You and your family can head out into the forest to locate as many of the hidden eight boxes as you'd like.  Please ensure box lids are secure when mindfully replacing boxes back where found.
