Naturalists in Training

Calling all kids! Do you have what it takes to think like a naturalist? *Please note updated time for this program*.

Put your thinking caps on and get ready for a scavenger hunt on the Merrick Mile. Join a park ranger to discover how naturalists use their eyes, ears, and noses! The Merrick Mile is an unpaved, easy-moderate trail with an elevation gain of about 120ft, so get ready for an adventure!

  • We will meet right outside of headquarters.
  • You will have up to 1 hour to complete the scavenger hunt!
  • What to bring: Water, sturdy hiking shoes, hats, and sunscreen.
  • Fees: Free with park admission. Park entrance fees are $6 per adult (13 years of age and older), free for children under 13.
  • Note: Naturalists in Training is subject to cancellation due to weather and trail conditions. Be sure to call headquarters the day of the scavenger hunt to ask if the trails are open!
