More About NWF's Hike & Seek Events

The 1-2 mile, go-at-your-own-pace hikes will have interactive "Stop & Study" nature stations with engaging learning activities including fun nature crafts, live wildlife displays and much more.

This year’s events will include 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 & Mission Guidebook to direct their path and will receive an Honorary Junior Naturalist badge from Ranger Rick at the end of the hike.

Hike & Seek is made possible by support from Disney, REI, Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies, Mattel, and National Recreation and Park Association.

The event is part of Be Out There™, NWF’s movement to reconnect families with the outdoors. NWF’s practical tools and information help make being outside a fun, healthy and automatic part of everyday life.
