Celebrate National Kids to Park Day in Decatur This Saturday

gardengoseek-your-park-poster-2015-fnl-cr

Buzz around eight Decatur community gardens, parks, and a woodland sanctuary on National Kids to Parks Day, May 16, a nation-wide day of outdoor play encouraging children to explore their local, state, and national parks and public lands. Garden Go Seek is a kid-oriented, family-friendly scavenger hunt designed to get you out of the house and into Decatur’s beeeee-autiful green spaces. And it won’t sting your family budget because it’s free!

  1. Pick up a free Garden Go Seek booklet at the Decatur Visitors Center, 113 Clairemont Ave. or at any the gardens listed here.
  2. Hunt down answers to all of the questions.
  3. Get a special prize at the Decatur Visitors Center, 113 Clairemont Ave.

Look for volunteers at each site from 11 am to 2 pm to answer questions. Can’t visit all eight in one day? Spread them out throughout the week or all summer!
