Part of the Climate Resilient Communities Series
Beginning March 27, community members can stop by the Children’s Desk at the Robert Crown Library, 1810 Main St., to pick up the sheets to make their own “hunt”-tellers. Alternatively, a link will be available on March 27 at epl.org to download. This is an outdoor, fun-for-the-whole-family activity, organized in collaboration with Natural Habitat Evanston.
Participants can make their own fortune-tellers and use them to locate everything in it. The cardinal rule is to leave natural materials alone – no collecting.
In this asynchronous, self-guided event, participants can learn about animal habitats (so many and so close!), the biodiversity of the area, and ways to help protect it.
This accessible and adaptable scavenger hunt can be done in any natural space, from the alleys around the house, to a playground or lakeshore, or even a National Park.
After the fun of learning about birds, insects, scavengers and local fauna, participants can head to the library between March 31 and April 5 to collect a small nature-related prize.
