Looking for something to do with your young explorers? Introducing the Backyard Explorer Challenge for kids to do from home! Step one to becoming a Backyard Explorer? Get out and have fun! Access the PDF here or from the right sidebar on the Summer Naturalist page.

As we adventure closer to home these days, there is still plenty to observe and learn about. Over the coming weeks, we will be sharing a series of three challenge sheets to add some focus to backyard explorations, modeled after our SLT Explorer’s Adventure. Sheets can be printed, downloaded to a computer or tablet, or completed by hand on any blank sheet of paper. Check back next Wednesday for another challenge!

After the three challenge sheets are completed, Backyard Explorers will be to be eligible to receive an SLT keychain compass to continue exploring, in the backyard and beyond, available once the SLT office reopens. Don’t have time this week? No worries -- once released, the Challenge Sheets will remain accessible on the Summer Naturalist page of our website.
