Where:  Ijams Nature Center / 2915 Island Home Ave. Knoxville 

This family scavenger hunt is going to be a great opportunity to get your whole family up and moving. Starting at the Ijams Visitor Center, you will be equipped with a list of tasks to complete and items to find. Then, each family will race to complete the list within the time allotted. The winning family will even recieve a special prize!
There will be two groups competing: families with younger children (ages 6 and under), and families with older children (7 and up). Activities will be silly, engaging, and hopefully present nature to your children in a fun way!
The fee for this program is $10 per family. All proceeds from this activity will be used to support the education department at Ijams, and allow us to provide educational opportunities throughout the year.
