Autumn scavenger hunt

Autumn Scavenger Hunt

Autumn has arrived and the parks are brimming with colour. See how many of these seasonal sights you can spot on your next trip to one of our country parks.

Turn your next family walk into a scavenger hunt! Put on your walking boots and unleash your inner explorer! Simply take this page with you and see how many signs of autumn you can spot along the way. Whether you’re heading out for a short walk near your home or going to a country park further afield, you should be able to spot fiery leaves, colourful mushrooms and fungi, autumnal berries, conkers, and an array of wildlife such as squirrels, ducks, beetles, and spiders. See how many of these things you can tick off the list.
