Until Next Year...

Our favorite challenges, what we learned, the challenges we missed, and the wild surprises we had along the way.

Tree Time Doesn't Take Much Time

It doesn't take too long, and you'll be surprised by what you learn about your tree. Our tip: record bark texture and leaf shape by making crayon rubbings.

Short Stop at Cameron Park in Waco

Our top tip: Six of the ten features are handicap accessible, so you can drive right up to them. (This will save tired little legs.)

Tree Search at the Austin Nature Science Center

Did you know that all 12 trees listed on the Central Texas Tree Search can be found at one location?

The Illusive Walnut Creek Geocache

We have attempted this challenge 3 times and still have only found 1 out of the 8 geocaches. What to do when your having trouble with a challenge and off trail advice.

McKinney Falls in April

This was the first challenge we did in early April. We had five homeschooling families come out to become Jr Rangers that day.

Introduction

Mission accomplished!
