These scavenger hunts are a fun way for students and leaders to explore the Sanctuary.
This scavenger hunt for early elementary students has 16 squares with pictures and simple text describing things to find around the Sanctuary’s paved visitor path.
For early elementary groups, each chaperone/leader/teacher will receive:
- A clipboard, dry-erase marker and laminated “Can you find?” sheet.
- All materials should be returned to the Sanctuary Resource Center upon completion.
This hunt for middle school students pairs finding plants and animals at the Sanctuary with reading the interpretive signs and using that knowledge to answer questions about the living things that call the Sanctuary home.
For middle school groups, students will work in pairs. Each pair of students will receive:
- A clipboard, pencil, laminated Scientific Scavenger Hunt grid and answer sheet. All materials except the answer sheet should be returned to the Sanctuary Resource Center upon completion.
- A copy of the correct answers to the scavenger hunt will be given to each teacher upon arrival.
Say “BIRDO!” We created five versions of this BINGO-style game so multiple people can play together. If you see an item on your sheet, mark it off. The first one to get five-in-a-row wins!
Since 1927, the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary has been a home for wildlife and a place for research, education and outreach. We welcome you to explore how the Sanctuary has changed over time. The tour is located along the main 3/4-mile paved path, and a brochure maps six marked locations along the way that highlight aspects of our rich history.
Take this trail guide on the mile-long Bluebird Trail. There are five points along the trail that correlate to different sections of the guide and share information on Eastern Bluebirds, nest box residents, backyard habitat, native plants, and monitoring nest boxes. This is a great resource if you are interested in birds that use nest boxes!
