Olympic Nature Experience hosts fall scavenger hunt

On Nov. 12, Olympic Nature Experience will host a fall scavenger hunt to benefit area preschoolers at the historical Dungeness Schoolhouse.

The Olympic Nature Experience, a nonprofit organization headed by local parent Sarah Salazar-Tipton, will provide an opportunity for residents to experience nature with their entire family.

The event aims to connect the community to nature through group-led hikes and play along the Dungeness River, highlighting the county’s restoration work and amount of diversity to be found locally. After exploring along the river, all guests will be invited back inside to enjoy local storytellers and snacks.

This event is open to the public. Scavenger Hunt doors open at 1 p.m. with activities running until 3:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 per per family.

Olympic Nature Experience is working to “rekindle people with nature through play, adventure and education in and around Sequim.” Offerings include Owl’s Hollow Nature School for 2- to 10-year-olds, Dungeness Adventure Club for entire families and camps for 3- to 12-year-olds.

All programs are held outdoors. See www.OlympicNatureExperience.org.
