Become a Seneca County Nature Sleuth!

The Seneca County Master Gardeners along with the Seneca County Park District have created a 2022 seasonal scavenger hunt for the community. Geared towards kids, but any age can do it! Simply stop by the OSU Extension Office, the Seneca County Park District Office or download the booklet to print your own.

Nature Sleuth Booklet

Then pick a park (or all 10 parks) and enjoy the four seasons by looking for the items listed in the Nature Sleuth Booklet. Identify what you found, which park you were in, and the season or date. Upon completion of the scavenger hunt, return your booklet to the park district office to receive a Seneca County Nature Sleuth Certificate of Achievement. 

Questions can be directed to Linda Rose at 419-447-8091 x105 or email Lrose@senecacountyparks.com
