The Scavenger Series challenge is designed for the wee ones. Who doesn’t enjoy a good scavenger hunt?!? Grab your littles and head out to a local trail to explore. Chances are you’ll both enjoy the time outdoors!
The Scavenger Series was created with a little learning and a little play in mind.
Since they were small, I’ve been taking my niece and nephew out hiking with me. There were some learning curves along the way but one thing that remained constant was their natural curiousity and love for scavenger hunts.
The Scavenger Series
Oh hey there savvy scavengers, who ready to explore? Let’s get outdoors and see what you can uncover!
- Feed the chickadees (hint: cooper marsh or stony swamp)
- Spot the big dipper, little dipper
- Find some rock tripe (hint: luskville falls or chutes de denholm)
- Identify animal tracks (hint: deacon escarpment or frontenac)
- Find a juniper bush (hint: eagles nest)
- Explore old ruins (hint: carbide wilson or stony swamp)
- Pick out your perfect maple leaf (hint: lauriault or frontenac)
- Learn a heritage fact (hint: eagles nest or chute rouges)
- Catch the sunrise or sunset (hint: mer bleu or mont morisette)
- Bring a friend (hint forest la blanche or foley mountain)
- Lookout at a lookout (hint: blueberry mountain or rock dunder)
- Build a cairn (chutes plaisance or pont de pierre)
My niece says bonus points if you find a shiny rock, wild mushroom, or a robin! My nephew enjoys building cairns, inukshuks, and chasing gophers…I do not recommend the latter. Oh my heart.
Check off each scavenger item as you discover them and feel free to tag @girl.gone.good and use #gggscavenger to have your snaps featured on Instagram.

Of course, my niece did just ask for our next adventure to be in Hawaii. And if that happens, I fear nothing around here will compare again. Ha ha ha. #maybemaybenot
