The Big Boreal Adventure is accessible for all ages.

Explore with our nature scavenger hunt

The guidebook offers information about each site, as well as a clue that gives hints to lead you to the post. There are blank pages in the guidebook so you can make a rubbing from the post into your book. The goal is to visit each site, find each post, and make a rubbing, using a pencil or crayon, from the post into your guidebook.
