Learning About Nature Is Fun With The Art & Nature Center's Scavenger Hunt

The Washington Island Art & Nature Center has teamed up with the Washington Island App to create a Scavenger Hunt for a fun adventure learning about nature on Washington Island.

For over 50 years, the ANC has been dedicated to the promotion of creative arts and natural history of Washington Island. Although the ANC provides a terrific opportunity for children and adults to interact and learn on-site with displays, insects and animals, along with hikes and classes and even a bee hive, they are always looking for more ways to reach out to the community and visitors. 


The app provides a way to make it fun for the whole family. With an activity sheet available at the ANC, kids can check off what they see and answer questions. The app provides a map of the sites, with detailed information and photos and even a “Did You Know?” section for extra details and fun facts.



To get started, download the Washington Island App (www.washingtonislandapp.com), available on iTunes and GooglePlay, and check out the Explore section. This is where you will find the Art & Nature Center Scavenger Hunt. Stop by the ANC and pick up your Activity Sheet when you are ready to get started. Take your time exploring these sites and when you are done, bring your finished sheet back to the ANC to receive your badge of completion. You will also be entered into a drawing to win a prize!

Don’t forget to check back to the Scavenger Hunt as more sites will be added.

Have fun!
