Nature Scavenger Hunts

All ages. Registration is not required. $5 Parking fee. These scavenger hunts are a fun and informal way to discover High Point. Each week you’ll explore a different area in search of natural artifacts. Some will be easy, others a little more difficult, and some call for creative thinking. Bring a picnic and/or a swimsuit and make a day of it!
