Hike & Seek at Bemis Woods

The new Chicago Hike & Seek event will be held at Bemis Woods South in Western Springs this Saturday, September 24. I love the way this event is described by saying "trade screen time for green time!"

The hike starts at 9am and lasts about 2-3 hours. There will be five Stop & Study Stations where your children will enjoy nature facts and interactive lessons. After completing each Stop & Study Station they will earn a colorful naturalist badge!

Onsite registration is $15 per adult, $9 per child. Register online today to get the early bird prices ($12 per adult, $7 per child).

The Hike & Seek National Sponsor, Keen, has interactive outdoor games and great gear to raffle off. Local sponsor, REI, will be teaching outdoor skills such as knot tying and will also be providing kid’s binoculars and Adventure Journals. REI will bring out the artist in all young children with their planned coloring craft activity.
