Families hike, learn during Hike & Seek

September 22, 2013 

The National Wildlife Federation is bringing its fourth annual Hike & Seek event to Seward Park on Oct. 5 in Seattle. Intended as a family outing, Hike & Seek is meant to inspire a child’s sense of adventure by combining a nature hike and scavenger hunt.

Participants will hike 1-2 miles at their own pace hike, stopping at interactive Stop & Study nature stations with activities including nature crafts and live wildlife displays. This year’s event includes a station highlighting an activity about trees themed around Disney Junior’s hit animated series “Jake and the Never Land Pirates.” Every child participant is given a map and mission guidebook, and will receive an honorary junior naturalist badge at the end of the hike.

Families are encouraged to sign up at hikeandseek.org early to register.

The event will start at noon. The park is at 5895 Lake Washington Blvd. S., Seattle, on the west side of Lake Washington.
