Let's find plants, amphibians, fungi, fish, reptiles, arachnids, birds, insects, mollusks, and mammals! After a Master Gardener briefing on species native to our park, this workshop sends kids on a scavenger hunt along the park trail to find those species. Students (and parents) will learn to use the "Seek" phone app to identify and log a list of species found in our park. Prizes, of course, wait at the end of the hunt! Class will be led by a Shelby County Master Gardener.
