Two Weeks Left to Go

Did you hear yet? There will be three random drawings for participants of the family oriented summer program if you submit a participation form by August 10, 2020.

Family Nature Adventures launched on June 10 as an ongoing program of 13 nature themed learning videos with suggested activities and questions to answer on our website:

Participating in Family Nature Adventures is a way for kids to earn a Junior Naturalist Badge by watching a video and doing a corresponding activity in nature, whether it’s their own backyard or a nearby park, and answer questions related to the activity.

Registration is not required to participate, however to earn a Junior Naturalist Badge and be entered in the three random drawings at least six activities must be completed and the Final Participation Form filled out and submitted by August 10.  The three drawings are for the Grand, Second and Third prize package and will be held in the NLI office on August 11. Prizes include family membership to NLI, field guides and tools, games, puzzles and NLI logo merchandise. See the list at:

Family Nature Adventures is open to all and tailored to families with kids two to 14. Through the videos and activities NLI organizers hope that children will discover the outdoors, fall in love with nature, spend time with their family and learn how to have fun in nature and want to protect it.
