Tips for Summer scavenger hunts

It can be very warm and sunny this time of year so remember to wear a good hat and apply sunblock on a regular basis. Rain is always a possibility so be prepared!

Remember: Only collect from the forest/woodland floor or with your eyes! And of course don’t collect living creatures and steer clear of mushrooms.
