To kick off Lethbridge Environment Week, Rob and Nicola attended the Nature Scavenger Hunt at the Helen Schuler Nature Centre. This outdoor event invited families and groups of all ages to be active and explore nature in our beautiful city. The wonderful staff at the Nature Centre designed a fun and engaging scavenger hunt that took participants through the river bottom, looking for signs of wildlife, learning about their environment and helping to keep the area clean by collecting 3 pieces of garbage. It was a hot day and the refreshments offered at the finish line were a welcome treat.
