Lion & Tiger Event

posted Aug 22, 2016, 11:08 AM by Matt Wagner
On Saturday, August 27th 
at 10:30am, we’ll be meeting at Buchner Park (near the Volleyball Courts) to perform a One Foot Hike.

For those not familiar with these, each scout will be tasked with finding a 1 square foot area to examine with their eyes and/or magnifying glass (if they bring one), and try to find some of the things that often go unnoticed when we walk through nature.

We’ll spend 5-7 minutes examining a section, mapping what we saw, and writing down as many different things we can find.

We’ll then spend a little time listening to nature and trying to determine what the different sounds are we hear.

What to bring:

  • A Magnifying glass (one you’re willing to let your scout use).
  • A pen or pencil to write with.
  • A magazine/notebook/clipboard to write on.
  • A scout t-shirt or uniform.

These kind of activities can take 30-45 minutes, depending on how interested the scouts are.

When we’re done, feel free to stop by the playground on the north end of the park.

This can be a fun activity to invite a friend to as well. I hope to see you there.
