Take Your Kids for a Walk on the Wild Side Hike & Seek nature event sponsored by National Wildlife Federation November 9, 2013 National Wildlife Federation (NWF), America's largest conservation organization, is pleased to announce the inaugural Hike & Seek™ event at Cullinan Oyster Creek Park (a City of Houston Park) on November 9 in Sugar Land, Texas. Hike & Seek is a family outing that inspires a child’s sense of adventure by combining a nature hike and scavenger hunt. The event brings families together for a few hours in the great outdoors for some fresh fall air and fun and provides an opportunity to rediscover nature. Hike & Seek is being held on Saturday, November 9, 2013, starting at 9 a.m. at Cullinan Oyster Creek Park, located at 12300 Hwy 6 S, Sugar Land, TX 77498 (near Sugar Land Regional Airport). Participants are asked to please arrive between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. People are encouraged to sign up early at www.hikeandseek.org for discounted registration fees and then show up ready to spend some family time in nature. The one to two mile go-at-your-own-pace hike will have interactive “Stop & Study” nature stations with engaging learning activities including fun nature crafts, live wildlife displays, and much more. This year’s events will include a station highlighting an activity about trees themed around Disney Junior's hit animated series "Jake and the Never Land Pirates." Every child participant is given a Map & Mission Guidebook to direct their path and will receive an Honorary Junior Naturalist badge from Ranger Rick at the end of the hike. Hike & Seek is made possible by support from Disney, REI, Mattel, the Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies, and National Recreation and Park Association.
