Nature Scavenger Hunt
Posted On: 2022-02-11

This hunt is intended to test the boys' knowledge of nature in an exciting competition. It is run like any scavenger hunt, with each den having a list of nature objects and identifying as many as possible in a time limit set (10 to 20 minutes). The list should have 20 to 50 objects from nature that can be found within the area. They should be common enough that a Cub Scout can identify most of them.

Your list will reflect nature items that can be found in your locale. These are some suggestions:

  • Anthill
  • Oak Leaf
  • Maple Leaf
  • Dandelion
  • Needle from an Evergreen
  • An insect
  • An animal home
  • A cocoon
  • A spider web
  • Animal track
  • Bird's nest
  • Barrel cactus
